Centropyge fisheri is also referred to as the Fisher's Angelfish, Fisher's Pygmy or Fisher's Dwarf Angelfish, Orange Angelfish, or Yellowtail Angelfish. He live endemically and is to be found exclusively in the Hawaii Islands and the Johnston Atoll. Fisher's Angelfish is predominantly orange with a thin, sapphire-blue outline highlighting the belly and anal fin; the caudal fin is pale yellow.

A aquarium with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing will offer an environment in which to thrive. It should be the only dwarf angel in the tank. Like the most angels he is not a good reef dweller, Centropyge fisheri will nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. It will also graze on diatoms on the tank surface.

It is hermaphroditic and has no distinguishable differences in color between male to female.

The diet of the Fisher's Angelfish should include marine algae, angelfish preparations, mysid or frozen shrimp, and other meaty items

Dieser Zwerg kam als Winzling zu mir und hat sich schon beim Händler als wehrhafter Geselle gezeigt.Dieses Verhalten hat er beibehalten,insbesondere bei Neuzugängen.Nun schwimmt er schon ca.2 Jahre bei mir ohne "Probleme".
Korallen sieht er weitestgehend nicht als Futter an,was aber auch an der täglichen Fütterung liegt!

Indo-w.Pacific; 8 cm; not common
Small specimens seen in our area but rare; easily overlooked, swims actively like, and
with similar bluish damselfishes in nature, hence also called Damsel Angelfishes; until
recently it was called C.flavicauda but now reclassified as C.fisheri that was thought to
be an endemic to Hawaii, and also C.acanthops from the Indian Ocean now is also
C.fisheri; easily kept in aquaria
