Order: perciformes

Family: pomacanthidae

Geography / Habitat: the bicolor angelfish are common in new guinea and the great barrier reef. Their range includes most of the pacific ocean excluding Hawaii.

Common Name: colin’s pygmy angelfish Scientific Name: centropyge colini Kingdom:animalia

Phylum: chordata

Class: actinopterygii

Order: perciformes

Family: chaetodontidae

Geography / Habitat: the Colin’s pygmy angelfish are found in the eastern Indian ocean and the west pacific; the coos-keeling islands, Indonesia, Papua new guinea, the Philippines, the Solomon, Fiji, Palauan and ogasawara island. They were first collected in the coos- keeling islands by smith vaniz in 1974. Life Strategy: somewhat delicate and being shy, this angelfish needs plenty of nooks and crannies to retreat into. The first challenge with keeping the Colin’s pygmy angelfish is getting it acclimated. They often refusing food when first acquired and can be difficult to get eating. Best success in keeping this fish will be with tank bred individuals. Food / Feed Strategy: the Colin’s pygmy angelfish are omnivores. Provide a varied diet. Meaty foods, dried flakes, shrimps, frozen prepared diets for sponge and algae eaters and tablets are acceptable. Feed frequently at first with various foods, including algae.
