Rock Beauty Angelfish

(4 customer reviews)


SKU: SKU-165 Category:


Rock Beauty angelfish, Holocanthus tricolor, are a fairly common Caribbean angelfish found mostly on the outer reefs in just about any depth of water. Rock beauties, like many other angelfish, are omnivorous grazers on the reef, so a varied diet in the home aquarium is the key to their survival.  Although they don’t seem to pick at corals in he wild, I would not suggest adding them to an aquarium full of corals.  Also, two rock beauties in an aquarium together will tend to fight with each other, so I would not recommend more than one.  They will get along with other angelfish, and most other fish, just not each other.

Most of the fish we ship out will either be very fresh, or will have been acclimated, quarantined, and will be eating dried pellet foods.  If you have a preference, indicate it at checkout and we’ll do out best to fulfill your wishes.

Small: 2 to 3 inches

Medium: >3 to 4 inches

Large: >4 to 5 inches

    Exceptionally healthy. Even after UPS wasn’t able to deliver the Rock Beauty until the following day, the 2 day trip during the winter, he was still healthy. He was gasping for air for while but a few days later he was eating. He liked frozen angel food, mysis and nori. Beautiful fish. No illnesses or blemishes.
    During and after the shipping issue Ken was very responsive, he clearly cares about the animals as well as his customers. Definitely recommend KP Aquatics to everyone I know.

    Specifically requested the smallest Rock Beauty on hand, and was not disappointed with what I received one bit. I’ve received 3 rock beauties from another supplier – they took a little while to adjust to food. The Rock Beauty from Kara and Philipp was eating virtually immediately. It has been doing well for months now. Could not be more pleased.
