The Dwarf Pygmy Angelfish also known as the Atlantic Angelfish or Cherub Angelfish is even smaller than the other dwarf angelfishes and the pygmy angels are becoming quite popular. One of the most popular is the Dwarf Pygmy Angelfish which is also known as the Atlantic Pygmy or sometimes the Cherub Angelfish.
They only get to be about 3 inches (8 cm) as adults and have an orange or yellow color to the head and throat area. The photo on this page doesn't do this fish justice. All of these Dwarf Angelfish are quite beautiful.
Angelfish benefit the most from a algae-centric diet, but can be acclimated to high-quality flakes foods and will eat other meaty foods like mysis & brine. As with all marine fish, the diet is best when varied and vitamin rich.
Angelfish along with other fish, corals and invertebrates will also benefit greatly from live phytoplankton which is readily available to them in the wild.
