The peppermint angelfish (Centropyge boylei) is a relatively small angelfish growing up to 7 cm in length, it inhabits tropical reefs and has been recorded at depths between 53 and 120 m. The peppermint angelfish is found in the eastern-central Pacific around the Cook Islands and Rarotonga. It is a shy species hiding amongst rocks and rubble of reef cliffs. C. boylei is occasionally exported as an aquarium specimen and can fetch high prices (a single specimen was offered to be bought for $30,000).
