Flame Angelfish

The Flame Angelfish, considered a flashy and justifiably popular species, is a dwarf angelfish and has long been considered a durable aquarium choice. They can be aggressive towards other Flame Angels as well as to other fish with similar shape or behavior if they are introduced after it has become established in the aquarium. To fit in well in a community aquarium, the Flame Angelfish should be the last fish introduced.

They are known to nip at LPS corals, zoanthids, and invertebrates. They may also eat soft coral polyps. Feed a varied diet and provide live rock for constant grazing. (Credit - "A Pocket Expert Guide, Marine Fishes")
