Bicolor Angel -- Centropyge bicolor

The Bicolor angelfish is appropriately named because of it's brilliant blue and yellow color. Although this is a very popular fish it is not as easy to keep as many other angelfish. Make sure they are offered hiding places and a diet which includes vegetable matter, small crustaceans, and worms.
