Creating a fabulous aquarium is very easy when you include freshwater Angelfish. There are a multitude of colors available and the distinctive personality of the fish make them an excellent addition to a vibrant fish tank. When you are choosing the fish, you may select the Pterophyllum scalare, one of the most popular and reasonably priced of the Angels, or a more unique species that is very expensive. There is a rainbow of colors and patterns on the fish that give you an beautiful kaleidoscope of moving color in your tank.
It will be important to remember that Angelfish live up to ten years when they are cared for properly. Therefore, it is important to plan on a long-term relationship with your fish and get a tank and accessories that will meet their needs. Angels grow to about six inches long although some varieties grow larger.
It is a good idea to get at least four to six Angels for your tank at one time. Getting your fish the size of a quarter or silver dollar will assure that they are not old. You might also want to select your fish because of their unique coloring. Some of the fish have markings and colors which change as they mature or when they are in a bad mood.
When you are going to add these fish to an existing tank, it will be important that you get three or four Angels and put them in the tank together. Angels are very social and more comfortable when they are in a group. In addition, they enjoy space and like to swim around so the bigger your tank the better. A breeding pair of Angels in a 20 gallon tank will be sufficient, however for healthy living, they will require a larger tank.
Almost all pet shops and dealers carry Angelfish, but it will be important that the dealer be reputable and reliable. Checking the background of the shop and looking at the way they care for their fish will give you a very good idea of the health of the fish in their care. Some people raise Angels as a hobby and sell them. These individuals take very good care of their babies and are attached to them. They have a personal investment in the fish and want to see them go to a good home.
It is less likely that your Angels will nip or eat the other fish in your tank if they are all raised together as juveniles. At a year old, your Angels will reach maturity and begin to breed. At this age they will pair off and become more aggressive. Angels are very protective parents and will protect a corner of the tank aggressively when they pair off. At this stage of development, it will be necessary to either move your slower swimmers to another tank or separate your breeding Angels from the rest of the group.
Adding freshwater Angelfish to an existing tank or creating an aquarium for Angelfish will be easier if you talk to people who have already got established tanks. There are several tips and tricks to assure that your fish will stay healthy and happy in their new home. You will also learn about breeding the fish and the benefits of growing your own brine shrimp.
