The Lemonpeel angelfish (Centropyge flavissima), also known as the Yellow Angelfish, is a species of marine ray-finned fish, a marine angelfish belonging to the family Pomacanthidae.
The Lemonpeel Angelfish is a cheery yellow with sky-blue highlights on the lips, encircling the eyes, on the pectoral fins, and the tips of the dorsal, caudal, and anal fins. To avoid confusion with the False Lemonpeel Angelfish (C. heraldi) that lacks the blue highlights, this angelfish is also referred to as the True Lemonpeel Angelfish.It will grow to an adult length of almost 5½ inches.
The Lemonpeel Angelfish requires a 70 gallon or larger aquarium with hiding places and large amounts of live rock to graze on the microalgae growth.
It is very prone to nip at large-polyped stony corals and clam mantles. It is best not to keep Lemonpeel Angelfish with fish of the same genera. It's recommended they are not to be placed in aquariums with other genus species or docile or more passive species as they can become bullies to less aggressive species, small or larger. These are harem fish. A lone male can be kept with one or even a small group of females. Two males will fight to the death.
The Lemonpeel Angelfish can also change sex from male to female due to their protogynous hermaphroditism.This species rarely breeds in captivity.
Lemonpeel Angelfish feed mostly in filamentous algae but is also a known omnivore. These angels should be fed 2 to 3 times a day with a varied diet consisting of marine algae, spirulina enriched foods, frozen mysid shrimp, shaved shrimp and brine shrimp.
