Freshwater Angelfish are immensely popular in the aquarium hobby, renowned for their diverse color patterns and graceful fins. These fish, scientifically known as Pterophyllum scalare, are generally peaceful but can become territorial, especially during breeding. Proper tank size, decor, and water quality are essential for their well-being.

 

Tank Size and Setup: Ensure your tank is spacious enough to accommodate each fish comfortably, providing ample space for their finnage. A 30-gallon tank is recommended for a single fish or pair, with larger tanks needed for community setups. Tankmates should be carefully chosen to avoid fin-nipping species like barbs. A planted tank with driftwood and rockwork provides excellent hiding spots.

 

Water Quality: Monitor ammonia and nitrite levels regularly and perform water changes as needed to maintain optimal water quality. Angels prefer slightly acidic to neutral pH levels (6.5 - 7.5) and hard water.

 

Diet: Angelfish are not picky eaters and accept a variety of foods. Feed them high-quality flake or small pellets/granules once a day, supplemented with meaty frozen foods like brine shrimp or bloodworms as a second feeding.

 

Behavior: While generally peaceful, breeding pairs can become territorial, especially when protecting eggs or young. Provide adequate hiding spots to reduce aggression.
