PYGMY ANGELFISH - The Coral Beauty Angel, Centropyge bispinosa:
Also called the Two-spined angel, this species can be found throughout the West Pacific and Indian Ocean and can reach a maximum size of about 4”. They’re typically as hardy and easy to care for as they come, and I haven’t had any troubles keeping them in reef aquariums, either. Still, I have heard of instances of them nipping at tridacnids and some corals. Note that they can also range from being almost entirely deep blue in color to having a mostly orange body, depending on the individual.
