Overview:

The coral beauty angelfish requires numerous hiding places. Create numerous patch reefs, which will serve as the territory focal point. It does especially well in an aquarium full of live rock (e.g., a reef aquarium) or a mature fish-only system with a luxuriant growth of filamentous algae. In these environments, the coral beauty angelfish has plenty of its normal fodder (i.e., detritus, algae). The occasional specimen may go off the rails and pick at large-polyped stony corals or soft coral polyps, such as Xenia.
