Black Angel - Pterophyllum Scalare
Community with caution – Can be fin nippers
The Angelfish, in all of its colour variants, is one of the most popular aquarium fish. It is ideally suited to larger, well planted aquariums. They are voracious eaters and will interact with their keeper to encourage feeding. Although they are generally fairly peaceful, they can become territorial, especially during breeding time.
Adult Length: 15cm
Temperature Range 23-29 C
pH Range: 6.0-7.5
Special Requirements: They prefer a taller tank, due to their body shape.
Tanks Mates: Although generally peaceful, they can be territorial and so tank mates should be robust enough to tolerate it.
Feeding: They are not fussy feeders at all and will take any quality food offered. Care should be taken to make sure other fish in the tank get their fair share.
