Flame Angelfish
Centropyge loriculus
 
Flame Angelfish are extremely colorful, they have varying shades of red, orange, black and blue and most certainly stand out among the residents of your aquarium. This dwarf angelfish is extremely popular and may be one of the top 10 saltwater fish kept by hobbyists. Care must be taken as they can be very territorial and may be best added last to your tank. Due to their aggressivness towards each other it is highly recommended that you keep only one Flame Angelfish in your tank.
