Other Common Names
Black Pygmy Angelfish
This coal black sensation stands out as an excellent addition to the home aquarium. One of the less aggressive of the family, the Midnight Angelfish is one addition that is more likely to behave itself in the home aquarium. Keep in aquarium with plenty of hiding places as the Midnight Angelfish is initially shy and can be easily be bullied by other fish. Can be kept with other Centropyge Angelfish species providing they are introduced simultaneously and that the other fish is not one of the more aggressive of the genus. It does exceptionally well in live rock tanks but most will eventually pick at stony and soft corals and clam mantles. It will ignore all non-sessile invertebrates such as shrimp and crabs.
In the wild the Midnight angelfish has a varied diet consisting of algae and crustaceans. The Midnight angel is not considered reef safe as it may nip at large polyped stony corals, soft corals, zoanthids and clam mantles. There are occasional specimens that live very long lives in reef aquaria as peaceful citizens but the majority of these fish will often turn for no apparent reason when they are older. This may be easily explained as many of the Centropyge family are predominately plankton eaters as juveniles and will switch to consuming itís natural adult diet once fully grown. Sometimes all it takes is for an underfed individual to Ďtestí a food source. This being the case, be sure to add this specimen to a well established tank and feed frozen mysis shrimp, meaty crustaceans such as shrimp and clam. Be sure to include algae such as spirulina.
