Potters Angel (Centropyge potteri) Care
The Potters Angel, Centropyge potteri, is also known as the Russet Angelfish and Potter’s Pygmy Angelfish. These fish come from the Eastern Central Pacific Ocean, including the Johnston and Hawaiian islands. They are bright orange with uneven, thin vertical black stripes in the head, body, and fins. The caudal, dorsal, and anal fins are outlined with bright blue and the pelvic and pectoral fins are yellowish-orange.
Potters Angelfish are omnivores and feed on marine algae and detritus, their diet should be supplemented with angelfish food and a variety of small meaty foods. Also, they do best in an aquarium that is at least 70 gallons or more and has plenty of live rock to graze on and hide in.
They are considered reef safe with caution because they have been known to nip at clam mantles and corals.
