The bicolor angelfish (Centropyge bicolor) is a marine angelfish, with an easily recognisable yellow front and a dark blue rear completed with a yellow tail. This species is widely distributed in the South Pacific. The bicolor angel fish has a maximum size at just under 10 cm making it a relatively large member of the Centropyge (Dwarf Angelfish) genus.

Despite being favored by many aquarists, the bicolor angelfish can be very difficult to keep, even experts often find it difficult to make them pass through the initial acclimation period.
