4. Peaceful Community Dwellers: Rusty Angelfish are known for their peaceful temperament, making them suitable for a community marine aquarium. They coexist harmoniously with a variety of marine fish and invertebrates, adding tranquility to your marine environment. However, they should not be mixed with other angelfish.

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Environment: Maintain a well-established marine aquarium of 55 gallons or more with ample live rock for hiding spots and natural filtration. Maintain stable water parameters, including a temperature range of 72-78°F (22-26°C) and a salinity level of 1.023-1.025.

  • Feeding: Offer a varied diet consisting of high-quality marine flakes, pellets, frozen foods, and occasional servings of live brine shrimp or mysis shrimp to meet their nutritional requirements.

  • Compatibility: Rusty Angelfish are peaceful and compatible with a variety of marine fish and invertebrates, making them a great addition to a reef or community aquarium. As with other dwarf angels, they are considered reef safe with caution, as they may nip at fleshy corals and sessile invertebrates like clams.
