The Cream Angelfish is an easy medium sized angelfish that has an aggressive streak. It should not be kept with other medium or large angelfish. It is prone to nip at sessile invertebrates (soft and stony corals) and clam mantles. Provide it with a varied diet of algae, live rock for grazing, mysis, Spriulina brine, clam, and angelfish food mixes.
