Overview:

The two biggest issues with Centropyge angels are whether or not they can be mixed with other pygmy angel species and whether they are reef-safe. The answer to both questions is sometimes but not always. Pygmy angels are unpredictable, and individuals of the same species can have different temperaments and dietary preferences. The Eibl’s Angelfish diet is highly important if you want to have a healthy specimen that will flourish in your aquarium. If this factor is kept stable and constant your Eibl’s angelfish will have no problems in your aquarium, the only thing that would then be of harm to your Eibl’s Angelfish would be external infections/ diseases etc. It would be advisable to include a lot of well-established live rock for sustained grazing.
