freshwater angelfish care
Freshwater angelfish are one of my favorite aquarium fish. These are extremely beautiful creatures because of their shape and personality. Freshwater angelfish are laterally compressed with 2 long fins coming out from the top and bottom. It is quite elegant watching them swimming. Sometimes they even have vertical stripes on their body. They are quiet and calm by nature but sometimes get excited during feeding or spawning time .
Also, extra care is needed in terms of water quality. You may find them easily at your surrounding aquarium shop at a cheap rate and care is easy. But don’t get fooled by their size while present in an aquarium shop. Dealers keep them in small sizes but they can grow up to the size of 6 inches with a long lifespan of over 10 years. If you provide good care in terms of water and food.
They are quite intelligent because they know their feeding time . These are omnivorous and can eat tropical flakes, daphnia or brine shrimps, plant matter, or sometimes their tank mates if they are small like guppies. Also, maintain good water circulation in the fish tank by using suitable fish tank air pumps. Also, don’t put them with fin-nipping fishes such as tetras and barbs. You can put 1 adult fish per 5 gallons or more. They are available in a wide variety. Growing freshwater angel fish may need 3-4 times of food per day. Change 25% of water per week.
