A very distinctive looking and popular high-bodied laterally-depressed fish.
Angelfish are Cichlids that are good tank mates to other quiet fish, however, Sometimes large Angelfish will become aggressive towards others, this can be genetic aggression or a result of establishing territory to breed.
Do not keep with small tetras or other small fish 3.8cm (1.5") and under, they may well become lunch, or overly aggressive fish. However, While Angelfish have been known to eat small fish, this can be largely prevented by adding small fish when the Angelfish is very young. It then doesn't regard these fish as food. It also appears to lessen the bullying of other Angels.
Feed once or twice a day, they will accept most foods including live/frozen types such as brine shrimp and good quality cichlid pellets as well as normal flake types.
This fish requires a depth of at least 38cm (15") in depth as these fish grow tall rather than long, they also appreciate live plants, good filtration, and plenty of swimming room. Water temperature of 23.9-25.6°C (75 -78 °F) is ideal.
