Photographed, and Copyright, by Jim Stime. Displayed at the Waikiki Aquarium


Common Name  - Easter Islands Pygmy Angelfish

Scientific name  - Centropyge hotumatua

Appearance  -  Head area is bright yellow / orange and balance of body is dark blue. Eye is surrounded with a blue ring and some specimens retain a blue false eye-spot at end of dorsal fin. Size ranges from 1 inch to 2 inches.

Location  -  Easter Island and a select few islands in the southeast Pacific Ocean.

Comments  -  Only an occasional few are collected for the hobby. Typically sell for $800 to $1,000. As with all centropyge it will feed on flake foods but will do much better on a variety of small bite-size frozen foods, such as mysis shrimp. These fish enjoy having access to hiding places and are often found in rocky or rubble areas. Tanks with live or decorative corals and rock are great. Position the rock openly so as to create many passages.
