Angelfish are overwhelmingly popular in the aquarium hobby, and its easy to see why. With their assorted color patterns and beautiful flowing fins, these fish truly live up to their name. Most angelfish are domestically-raised variants of the species Pterophyllum scalare although other, less common species and wild individuals are also occasionally available.

Angelfish are generally peaceful, although - like other cichlids - they can become territorial if there is inadequate space for them to live happily. A breeding couple may also become particularly nippy when protecting eggs or young. Be sure your tank is large enough to allow each fish to have their own space, and also be sure the tank is tall enough to allow the fish space for their longer finnage. The recommended tank size of 30 gallons is for a single fish or pair; increase the tank size for a community tank including angelfish.

Beware of fin-nipping tankmates such as barbs. Angel fins are very tempting to these fish! A planted tank is a great home for angelfish, plus other decor, such as driftwood and rockwork, makes great hide-out areas for your fish. Water quality is also important for your angels, so keep an eye on your ammonia level, and be sure to perform water changes regularly.

Angels aren't too fussy when it comes to diet. Feed them a varied diet such as flake or small pellets/granules with a meaty frozen food supplement such as brine shrimp or bloodworms.

Angelfish have been successfully bred often in home aquariums. The eggs are laid on flat, fairly vertical surfaces like broad plant leaves, flat rockwork or the sides of the aquarium. Adult angelfish form breeding pairs and the pair will defend their territory from other angelfish and tankmates. Gender in angelfish, even in adults, is fairly difficult to determine and pairs will usually form naturally from a group of juveniles.

You are wonderful


I always love angel fishes i just got a 60 gallon fish tank and am happy I found your website

Both died


We recently purchased a Veil tail and 2 silver "assorted angelfish" in store. Both silver Angelfish died in less than 2 weeks. The veil tail was in a separate tank and appears to be doing well. It would cost more in gas to return the dead fish.

Vague Purchase Description


You should explain this purchase better. Will I receive 1 of each fish pictured for $7.99? will I received one of the fish pictured for $7.99? If so, will the fish I receive be chosen at your discretion? Do I have the opportunity to choose which of these fish I would like to receive???? I am of the opinion that those with websites give the consumer very little information.<BR><br><b><i>That Fish Place: Hi Teensy, thanks for checking in with us. This particular fish purchase would be a single angelfish. We have several pictures shown to give you a general idea of what the angelfish could look like. The angelfish species has a high variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Unfortunately we cannot offer a specific selection. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!</i></b>

Angel fish came in great shape


I only ordered one angel fish and am sorry I didn't get more. It's doing very well.
