Just got him tonight. Lights are off now and he is under the rocks. Basically he is navy blue with a white tail. Not very pretty but very practical eating habits.

This is description of it in saltcorner


Common Name: White-tail Angelfish
Species Name: Centropyge flavicauda Fraser- Brunner, 1933
Range: Mid to Western Pacific

Size: up to 2 inches (5 cm)

Natural Environment: Inhabit areas over bottom rubble on outer reef slopes and in channels leading to lagoon areas and found at a wide range of depths, 30 to 200 feet (10 - 65 m)

General Husbandry: Can easily be confused with a damselfish, as its dark blue coloration and body shape is identical to that of some damselfish. Prefer a temperature of 77 - 82°F and natural diet consists mainly of algae. Possibly, a bare bottom tank containing much coral rubble and rocks forming caves and crevices might be the best environment for this fish. Reason being they also feed on detritus, and bare bottom tanks make it easier for them to access areas containing this medium. It's also quite easy to occasionally clean areas under loosely stacked rock and rubble in bare bottom tanks with the flow from a powerhead. Rarely seen in the trade.
