Zoological Nomenclature: Pterophyllum Scalare
This is what you think of as the classic angel fish. Farm-raised angelfish in general are hard to find in the hobby these days because most Angels are imported from overseas or wild caught. These are absolutely high-quality farm-raised fish by Arizona Aquatic Gardens and shipped to your door direct since 1987. Enjoy these and other color angels available on our site!
It is best when trying to breed Angels, to keep a number of them in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, a flat surface needs to be provided where the eggs can be laid such as a piece of slate, driftwood, or even a flowerpot can be used. The female will lay eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize. After 3 days, the eggs will hatch and the fry will emerge. Feed the fry newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food.
