      Scientific Name: Centropyge fisheri
      Common Names: Fisher's Angelfish, Orange Angelfish
      Max. size: 6.0 cm TL (male/unsexed) 2.4 inches
      Environment: reef-associated; non-migratory; marine; depth range - 10 m
      Climate: tropical
      Distribution: Eastern Central Pacific = restricted to the Hawaiian Islands. Most records from the Indian Ocean probably are misidentifications of Centropyge acanthops. Records from the western Pacific are probably misidentifications of Centropyge flavicauda, now considered a probable synonym of Centropyge fisheri.
      Morphology: Overall yellow-orange with a black blotch about equal to eye diameter just above the pectoral-fin base, and numerous closely-set fine black dots along the base of the dorsal and anal fins. Pelvic fins blue; anal fin with blue margin.
      Biology: Found in areas with rubble bottom.
      Aquarium Care: Provide hiding places. Will spend time peeking from the hiding spots or dashing from one crevice to another. Feeds on diatoms, and can be aggressive to more peaceful tankmates (especially in a smaller tank).
