This is a Dwarf Angelfish

A mystery Centropyge

Here are some physical traits that might help ID this species:

  • Orange primary pigmentation
  • Dark, vertically-stripped patterns on top flank – strongest at the head and increasingly faint but visible all the way to the tail.
  • Oculi on the rear dorsal fin
  • Blue coloration around eye, dorsal fin, and anal fin.

(note: missing portion of the top dorsal fin is due to shipping damage).

So what do you think this Dwarf Angelfish is?
