Lemonpeel Angelfish – Centropyge flavissima

The lemonpeel angelfish comes from the Indo-west-Pacific ocean region. The lemonpeel will do best in an aquarium that has plenty of active and health live rock with micro-algae growth for it to graze on. The lemonpeel is considered a dwarf angelfish

Maximum Size: The lemonpeel angelfish should grow to a maximum size of 5.5 inchesLemonpeel angelfish are not recommended for reefs

Minimum Tank Size:  The minimum tank size should be 20 gallons

Care Level: The lemonpeel angelfish is a moderate hardy fish to maintain. On a scale of 1 –10, the (10 being easy) it would rate a “4.5”. The tank should already be cycled. This should also not be a last fish to be put in especially if there are potentially more aggressive fish already in the tank.

Tank Conditions: Temperature 77-79°F; Specific gravity: 1.020 – 1.024; pH: 8.1 – 8.3; Nitrates should be no more than 20 ppm for fish only tanks – 5 ppm in a mixed tank.

Lemonpeel angelfish grow to about 5.5 inchesColor: The lemonpeel angelfish – as picture shows is almost entirely yellow. Blue circles the eyes and around the gills, mouth and fin tips

Temperament: This is a good fish. It can ultimately become aggressive to other angelfish kept in the aquarium. You can possibly maintain a male and female together.

Reef Compatible: Will nip at and possibly destroy hard and soft corals. Not a candidate for a reef aquarium.

Diet: The lemonpeel angelfish is an omnivore and should be provided live rock with micro-algae for it to graze on. Typical meaty foods such as brine shrimp, clams etc that can be purchased from your local store should be provided.

Habitat: Provide with plenty of hiding places and live rock growth for grazing on – keeping live rock is important. Good water circulation is important as well as high quality water maintenance. Filtration should include a protein skimmer and activated carbon filtration.
