The Yellowfin Dwarf Angel Fish sports showy yellow pectoral fins that contrast dramatically against a dark brown body coloration with metallic navy-blue vertical bars. As its common name suggest, the yellow pectoral fins appear like moonbeams peering through a dark midnight sky. The effect of this striking coloration is accentuated as the Yellowfin Angelfish swims.
An aquarium with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing will provide a good environment.
Caution is advised if introducing the Yellowfin Dwarf Angelfish to a reef aquarium since it may nip at stony and soft corals.
The Yellowfin Dwarf Angelfish is hermaphroditic, and has no distinguishable differences in color between male to female.
The diet of the Yellowfin Dwarf Angelfish should include marine algae, mysis or frozen shrimp, and chopped meaty foods.
