Common Name - Midnight or Black
Scientific name - Centropyge nox
Appearance - Deep velvet black. Very
attractive... but just black.
Location - Widely distributed throughout the
south Pacific and Great Barrier Reef.
Comments - I have never kept one but having
seen many of them and I believe they are shy, similar to the Golden Angel, and could be aggressive towards newly
added tank mates. Best to add this as one of the final fish going into the tank.
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. Tanks with lots of live or
decorative corals and rock are great. Position the rock openly so as to create many
