Assorted Veiltail Angelfish - Pterophyllum scalare

Product Description:

The Assorted Veiltail Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) is a stunning and elegant addition to any freshwater aquarium. Known for their graceful, elongated fins and striking coloration, these angelfish are a favorite among aquarists. Their majestic appearance and peaceful demeanor make them an excellent choice for community tanks and planted aquariums.

Key Features:

1. Majestic Appearance: Veiltail Angelfish are characterized by their long, flowing fins and diverse color patterns. Each fish displays unique variations in color, ranging from silver and gold to marbled and striped, adding a touch of sophistication to your tank.

2. Peaceful and Graceful: These angelfish are generally peaceful and can coexist well with other non-aggressive fish species. Their graceful swimming patterns and serene presence create a tranquil environment in your aquarium.

3. Easy to Care For: Veiltail Angelfish are relatively hardy and can adapt to a variety of water conditions, making them suitable for both beginner and experienced aquarists. With proper care, they can thrive and display their full beauty.

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: A minimum tank size of 20 gallons is recommended for a single angelfish. For a group of angelfish, a larger tank of 30 gallons or more is ideal to provide ample swimming space.

  • Aquarium Setup: Provide a well-planted tank with plenty of vertical space, as angelfish enjoy swimming in open areas. Include decorations like driftwood and rocks to create hiding spots and mimic their natural habitat.

  • Feeding: Offer a varied diet that includes high-quality flake or pellet food, along with live or frozen foods such as brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia. Feeding 2-3 times daily in small amounts ensures they receive proper nutrition.

  • Water Parameters: Maintain stable water conditions with a temperature range of 76-82°F (24-28°C), pH between 6.5-7.5, and hardness between 3-8 dGH. Regular water changes and efficient filtration are essential for their health.

  • Tank Mates: Suitable tank mates include other peaceful community fish like tetras, rasboras, and corydoras. Avoid housing them with fin-nipping species or aggressive fish.

Difficulty: Easy to moderate, suitable for beginner to intermediate aquarists.

Maximum Size: Assorted Veiltail Angelfish can grow up to 6 inches (15 cm) in length, with their fins adding to their overall size.
