Very common on the Great Barrier Reef, the Coral Beauty Angelfish is also known as the Twospined or Dusky Angelfish. The body and head are a deep royal blue, highlighted with an iridescent orange to yellow. The Coral Beauty Angelfish is one of the easiest angels to care for.
It requires a 70 gallon or larger tank with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing. Not a good reef dweller, the Coral Beauty Angelfish is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates).
The diet of the Coral Beauty Angelfish should consist of Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysis or frozen shrimp, and other quality meaty foods.
Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 1-3/4"; Medium: 1-3/4" to 2-1/2"; Large: 2-1/2" to 4"

The gorgeous, velvet like colors of this fish cannot be captured in photos. Very active, personable, and hardy.
My "Harvey" is the most beautiful fish I've ever seen in person or otherwise. I highly recommend the Coral Beauty, but only if you have a large tank of 75 gallons or more. They spend a lot of time grazing algae so must be placed in an established tank. Mine eats like a little piggy! Very relaxing to watch.
I had a coral beauty for two years and sold him to another person after I had to move overseas. Fantastic fish that never gave me a hard time. Always swimming about and very peaceful. Definately recommended!
I have one Coral Beauty Angelfish in my 72 gallon tank. I love him. He has GREAT color and gets along great with my other fish. I would recommend to anyone that is thinking about getting one to go ahead and do it, you will love it.
The Coral Beauty Angelfish is one of my favorite fish in my Marine tank. I recommend this fish for beginners because they will eat almost anything you put in the tank, and are a hardy fish. They also like an aquarium with lots of hiding places.
I purchased a Coral Beauty Angelfish about three weeks ago. It is one of the most beautiful and hardiest fish in my 125-gallon aquarium. It easily feeds on frozen brine shrimp and sea algae. I would recommend purchasing one of these beautiful angels of the deep blue sea!
The pictures does this fish no justice at all. The fish is very beutiful and its colrs are very vibrant in real life. This fish is very active and is constantly moving about my tank do its thing. Out of all my fish in my 75 gallon tank, it get the most attention and people are drawn to its natural beauty, hence the name right?:)This fish by far is one of my favorite fish in my tank.
My favorite marine fish. Doesn't pick at any corals in my tank, and I have SPS,LPS, and soft corals in there. He isn't aggressive and has tons of personality, and also seems to be very smart. Highly recommended!
No photo will ever do this fish justice. My Besuty has a great personality, she has discover how to ride the current in my tank. She provides us with hours of entertainment. Easy to care for and brings vibrant color to our FOWLR tank.
