The Black Nox Angelfish, also known as the Midnight Angelfish, is uniformly black over its entire body.

It requires at least a 70 gallon tank with lots of hiding places. The Black Nox Angelfish should be the only dwarf angelfish in the tank. It is not a good reef dweller and may eat soft coral polyps, clam mantles, and zoanthids.

It is very difficult to breed in an aquarium, and has no distinguishable differences in color between male to female.

The diet of the Black Nox Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, mysis shrimp along with other meaty fare, and live rock for grazing.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 1-3/4"; Medium: 1-3/4" to 2-1/2"; Large: 2-1/2" to 4-1/2"

Customer Testimonials

Carmel Bechard Amherst / Merrimack , NH
I love my Black Nox angelfish! His sleek, shadowy silouhette provides the perfect backdrop against the LED lit corals, live rock anf colorful fishmates! Very mellow - gets along great with my other fish! Live Aquaria could have packed him better (there were no heating packs in the styrofoam container!), and Fed Ex was LATE delivering him, so he was on his last leg when we got home. But after a long, gentle acclimation he's now thriving. A good little fish worth considering, very underrated!
