Natural History: The Bicolor Angelfish is generally found in harems among coral-rich areas in small patch reefs and lagoons. It is reclusive and usually remains near a hiding place. There may be up to 10 females, mature and juvenile, within a single male's territory. This species is often observed feeding around other species feeding activities, such as goatfish.
Husbandry: Te Bicolor Angelfish will thrive better if hair algae is present in the aquarium. It will pick at stony coral polyps and tridacnid clam mantles. It is not overly aggressive toward other fishes, if they are all added simultaneously. Add it last to a tank if it is to be housed with other peaceful fish.
