Centropyge resplendens, Resplendent Pygmy Angelfish, dwarf angel fish, pygmy angels
Photographed and Copyright by Jim Stime - Resplendent.biz


Common Name  -  Resplendent Angelfish

Scientific name  -  Centropyge Resplendens

Appearance  -  Beautiful deep metallic blue body with a yellow strip running from the tip of the nose and mouth across the upper dorsal. The tail fin is also a continuation of the yellow strip. A thin blue line runs along the edge of the dorsal fin.

Location  -  Wild specimens are found only at Ascension Island, half way between South America and Africa.

Comments  -  Since the Gulf War there have been only 3 or 4 collection trips to this Island. Tank raised specimens are now available through Reef Culture Technologies ( www.rcthawaii.com ). Once past acclimation this fish is very hardy and eats well. 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 live or decorative coral and rock are great. Position the rock openly so as to create many passages.
