Pygmy (Cherub) Angelfish
If you are brave enough to try a dwarf angelfish in your reef tank (other than a couple reef safe varieties) this is probably your best choice, however, it is known to nip at LPS corals and clam mantles The Pygmy Angelfish is also called the Cherub Angelfish, or Atlantic Pygmy Angelfish. It is a brilliant sapphire-blue with orange highlights to the face. It is best to only have one per tank unless you are lucky enough to find a mated pair. Provide plenty of established live rock for grazing and hiding. As with all angels, it is important to feed quality algae preparations and Angel specific food containing sponge.
