Centropyge eibli, commonly known as the Blacktail angelfish, is one of the larger dwarf angelfish. They've the typical Centropyge body shape, with a creamy-grey to yellowish base colour. Their caudal fin as well as the last part of the dorsal fin are black (as the common name already suggested) and they've orange to red vertical 'tiger' stripes and the rims around the eyes and dorsal and anal fin are also orange/red. Their dorsal, caudal and anal fin also have an electric blue rim, making it a beauty to watch!

Like all other angelfish it's hermphroditic and the most dominant fish will turn into a male when there is no other male around. These fish are quite peaceful but be careful combining them with fish a lot smaller or larger and other (dwarf)angelfishes. Although dwarf angels are certainly more likely to be reef safe compared to their larger relatives and thus seen more often in reef tanks, they're always a risk. C. eibli is one of the species known to nip on corals from time to time, but usually not to the point they need to be removed. Certain corals like Acanthastrea and Blastomussa and clams can best be avoided if you want to play on safe. Keeping them well fed seems to reduce the risk so make sure to feed them a proper varied diet of algae and meaty foods to make them really happy!
