Bali Aquarich Claims Centropyge eibli Breeding First
26 Jun, 2019
Call it Eibl’s Angelfish, the Red Stripe Angelfish, or the Blacktail Angelfish (or even call it half of the recipe for a Tigerpyge), but whatever common name you chose, Centropyge eibli is a charming dwarf angelfish that somehow escaped the focus of the world’s marine angelfish breeding experts–until now. Bali Aquarich, in a flurry of breeding firsts in the first half of 2019, has captured another species-first, showing off their captive-bred C. eibli.
This accomplishment was, admittedly, overlooked by CORAL editors for a little while, and Bali Aquarich hadn’t heavily promoted the news. Wen-Ping Su, Bali Aquarich founder, relayed that his farm had been producing the species for several months. “We sent some to De Jong Marinelife [in the Netherlands] about 3-5 months ago,” said Su in a chat. After further examination, it appears that the first C. eibli were produced by Bali Aquarich in the fall of 2018.
Su has noted that C. eibli is not a species currently targeted for large-scale commercial production. Instead, the captive-breeding project represented a research and development opportunity, which is simply an effort to learn how the species would respond to culture methodologies. The astute observer will also note that Bali Aquarich has been actively producing a small but steady stream of the closely related Lemonpeel Angelfish, Centropyge flavissima.
Perhaps it’s up to the reader to speculate as to what the talented marine fish breeders in Bali might be up to!

Again fantastic to read up on the breeding of Angel fish. I’m in the wrong job and wrong country.
Keep up the good work
One day we hope that we could all contribute to saving the stocks of marine life with the fish inverts and corals.
