Tibicen Angelfish (Centropyge tibicin) Care
The Tibicen Angelfish, Centropyge tibicin, is also known as the Keyhole Angelfish or Melas Angelfish. These fish come from the Pacific Ocean region. The Tibicen Angel is a dark blue-brown to blue-black with the pelvic and lower portion of the anal fins are yellow. There is a white vertical bar on the mid-central body.
Tibicen Angelfish are omnivores that require a diet of marine algae, angelfish food, and a variety of small meaty foods.
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. Tibicen Angelfish do not do well with other angelfish or fish that are similar in size or appearance to themselves.
They are considered reef safe with caution because they have been known to nip at clam mantles and corals.
