These fish are a brilliant sapphire-blue with orange highlights to the face.
The Cherub Pygmy Angel Fish require an aquarium with numerous hiding places and live rock for grazing on microalgae.
They may nip at large-polyped (fleshy LPS) stony corals and clam mantles. The Cherub Pygmy Angel fish can be aggressive, so it is best to never have more than one male per tank, since they may fight to the death.
A breeding pair may be kept, and the Cherub Pygmy Angel Fish has been bred in an aquarium with success.
The Cherub Pygmy Angel Fish should include marine algae, chopped meaty foods, mysis or frozen shrimp.
