Well I went to a LFS that was having a huge sale 30% off live stock and $1 a gallon for tanks. I did not go there to buy anything.(yeah right) but when i walked up to the fish the very first fish I saw was a golden angelfish. I have never heard of this kind of angel. He only get about 5 inchs. The price tag was $90 so with the 30% off I got a pretty good deal. Has anybody ever heard of the type of angelfish? TIA
Centropyge heraldi...aka: golden dwarf or heraldi angelfish

Following excerpt taken from
The Yellow & Black Heraldi Angelfish is a bright yellow with a jet black stripe on the rear half of the dorsal fin. This unique fish is a color variation of Centropyge heraldi, which is entirely yellow in color. Found in the pristine waters of the South Pacific this unique angelfish will make a wonderful addition to the established marine aquarium.

The Yellow & Black Heraldi Angelfish requires a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places and large amounts of live rock to graze on the microalgae growth. In the reef aquarium, this species may nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles.

The diet of the Yellow & Black Heraldi Angelfish should include Spirulina, marine algae, high-quality angelfish preparations, mysid or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items.


Thats not the same angel I have. The one I have golden yellow w/ black stripes going up and down his body. I found a web site that says it is a dwarf and only gets 5 inchs
Is it Centropyge multifasciatus or banded multifasciatus angelfish? has them in their dwarf angles category. if I could ever figure out how to post links it would sure make things easier. :wink:
lando.. I found that fish but thats not it either. The second pic you posted looks kinda like him but mine has black stripes on him. I tried to find so info on this fish and found very little. He must be a rare fish. LFS that i bought him from said that they have only had 3 of them in two years.
Ny wife would kill me if i bought another 90 gallon tank. The closest angel would be a rusty angel
No...I wish..LOL I just found what it is. Its a Golden Dwarf Angel. From what I have seen then only get up to 3 inchs. LFS told me they get up to 5.. OH well. Now i was wondering if I could put another dwarf angel in my set up? I did get a pretty good deal on this fish online I found them well over $100.
In a 90 you would probably be Ok. Plenty of real estate for 2 dwarfs.
One question though, are you planning a reef?
90 should be enough room for 2. Just get the other one soon before tank domination becomes a factor.
