      Scientific Name: Centropyge multicolor
      Max. size: 9.0 cm TL (male/unsexed), ~3.5 inches
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range 20 - 115 m
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Pacific Ocean = Palau, Pohnpei and Kosrae in Micronesia, Marshall, Gilbert, Fiji, Cook and Society Islands; strays to Hawaii.
      Morphology: Dorsal spines (total): 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-17; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 17
      Biology: Inhabits steep outer reef slopes, typically in small tracks of rubble between areas of rich coral growth. Cryptic. Herbivorous. Feeds readily in aquaria. Forms harems of 3-7 individuals. Rarely exported through the aquarium trade.
      Aquarium Care: Provide a lot of hiding places and live rock to graze on. This is a deep water dwarf dwarf species that requires few tankmates and subdued lighting. If keeping under brighter light, acclimation to the light may be required. Aquascaping can also provide a retreat. May nip at sessile inverts, such as Tridacnid clams, stony and soft corals. The Multicolor Angel can be territorial with members of its species and genus (especially in smaller tanks).
