A single goldflake will do well in an aquarium of at least 125g,once settled it will become aggressive. Once rarely seen in the trade the goldflake is becoming more popular but does have a price tag to match. Will eat nori,vitemin fortified shrimp and will also graze on live rock

The Xanthurus Cream Angelfish adapts readily to aquarium life. It requires a minimum of a 125 gallon tank or larger with lots of hiding places and live rock for grazing will offer an environment in which to thrive. It is prone to nip at stony and soft corals (sessile invertebrates) and clam mantles. Only one specimen should be kept per tank.
