The Mauritian Tiger Tail Coral BeautyCentropyge bispinosa, also go by the name Tiger Tail Angelfish. These fish are attractive dwarf angels that make great additions to marine tanks. Their heads and fins are a gorgeous deep royal blue colour, which nicely frames the orange to yellow pattern on their bodies. As the name suggests, these fish also have the striped pattern across their tale. They are perfect for anyone looking to add activity and colour in their aquarium.

These Angelfish belong to the Pomacanthidae family. A group famous for their vivid colours. The name is Greek for, “cover” (poma) and “thorn” (akantha), which refers to the pair of strong spines on the gill cover.

It is important to have plenty of nooks or crannies where your Mauritian Tiger Tail Coral Beauty can explore and feel at home. Keepers may also want to get a jump guard to stop any accidents.

Mauritian Tiger Tail Coral Beauties are omnivores and do best when fed a varied diet. They will accept frozen Mysis shrimp and enriched frozen brine shrimp. We enrich all our frozen food with seachem garlic guard and Atvitol vitamins. These are great for keeping fish healthy by providing them with the nutrition otherwise lost in frozen food. In doing so, these additives support their immune system and increase longevity.

Mauritian Tiger Tail Coral Beauty Angelfish will eat masstick and graze on marine algae, that can be secured to the side of the tank with clips. Over time they will accept high-quality pellet or flake. We adapt all our Angel Fish to aquarium life before they leave us. We focus on their health, and most are eating a good quality flake food and/or pellet before being offered for sale.

Dwarf Angelfish can live in a mixed group or alone. It may also be possible for them to be in pairs. This depends on a few variables. Feel free to give us a call with any questions on this matter.
