product highlights

Angelfish are generally peaceful with same-sized fish, but breeding angels may become aggressive. Also, they will eat fish small enough to fit in their mouths. Angelfish are shy and need plenty of cover areas like tall plants with slender leaves. Instead of plants, these fish eat aquatic crustaceans, worms and aquatic insect larvae. Angelfish are beautiful tropical freshwater fish that come in a variety of colors. They are popular with fish hobbyists and can be found in tanks all over the world. You will see your angelfish swimming in the middle of your aquarium. To create a beautiful aquarium environment, be sure to add some top and bottom swimmers as well. Ask a PetSmart associate to help you choose.

Things to Remember

Staple diet
Choose a tropical flake or pellet fish food. Feed according to the directions on the packaging.

Specialty Foods
Angelfish will enjoy fresh or frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp and daphnia. Always remember to thaw frozen foods before feeding.

Frequent Feedings
For optimum health, feed your angelfish as much food as they will consume in 1-3 minutes, twice a day. You can alternate between regular staple diet feedings and 2-4 meals per week of a specialty food.

Start with a 29-gallon or larger, tall aquarium. A good rule of thumb is one gallon of water for every one inch of full-grown fish.

Decorate their aquarium with rocks, driftwood and plants, but be sure to place them on the sides and back of the aquarium so they'll have enough space to swim in the center. Avoid decor with sharp edges.

Fish Compability
Angelfish should not be housed with highly aggressive tank mates or fin nippers. They can share their aquarium with community gouramis, discus and other non-aggressive cichlids.

Angelfish is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Angelfish Angelfish are my favorite freshwater fish! I've been having mine for a few years now. I have two in a 46 gallon bow front aquarium (I used to keep them in a 29 gal tank until I upgraded to this one). I don't think I'll ever have an aquarium without them in it! They are big & beautiful. My 2 Angels will follow me down the tank, waiting on me to feed them. My black Angel will even eat on an algae wafer out of my hand. They get along great most of the time, but every now & then they like to argue. They don't seriously fight to hurt each other, they mostly "bluff" or nip each other a little. They usually like to stay in the middle of my aquarium between the two castles & when one of my other fish come into their territory they shoo them off. Other than that they don't really bother my other fish. I recommend housing medium to larger sized fish with these guys as they can eat smaller, slender fish (like neon tetras). I keep my Angels with skirt tetras, cory cats, pleco, ghost cat, & sword tails. They prefer taller tanks over long, short tanks. I wouldn't keep them in a tank smaller than 29-30 gallons. They need plenty of room to swim. My two are going on 3 years old so they seem very hardy. I love them & I highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY beautiful and VERY graceful. I have two Koi Angelfish and they make a nice centerpiece. They are friendly and follow me from one side of the tank to the other. I have taught them to eat food of my finger and they just have a great personality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fish! These fish are for intermediates. They are slightly aggressive, they get along with fish that they can dominate but not defeat (cats, barbs like tigers, gourmi, etc.) Dominate so there is no temptation to nip their long fins but intimidated enough that the other fish don't become lunch. But a fish with a better personality you'll never find. My first angel lived for years and stayed in my grandma's kitchen. She loved to follow us around the room (whatever side of the tank we were on that's where she was). Was super friendly, loved to be hand fed and even petted on the head! I was constantly having to watch visitors, caught my dad feeding her chips and my sister feeding her crackers! Unfortunatly she tried to lay eggs but with no mate to fertilize them they would just fall. Finally the stress of tring to save her eggs killed her. Now since I have a larger tank (only had a 10 then) I've got 3 and they are already starting to respond to me. I hope to eventually have a mated pair or at least one male that won't have the same thing that happened to my last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Little Angles! My 3 angels are very social and will eat from your hand. I have not found them to be aggressive towards other fish, though I do have one dominate male who is slightly territorial towards the other two. They are slow moving, easy going fish, but because of their size...they should never be kept in an tank smaller than 30g. Also take care when feeding if kept with other, faster moving fish because the angles just won't get their share. Foods should be sprinkled in some floating plants where the angels can take their time, while other fish are feeding from the top. They also enjoy sinking algae waffers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fish! Not for begginers. We just got ours a couple of days ago! It has done fine no fighting our any other nonsense. This fish looks amazing with other Cichlids and Tetras. They are picky so they probably aren't the best for begginers. Mine is in a 37 gallon with some other fish. Although the store may say 20 gallons or so they will most likely do best in a 30 gallon which has lots of room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my little angels They look beautiful in my 60 gallon tank I bought 4 of them. They appear healthy although one is missing a bottom feeler. I didn't notice it at the store but when I let her in the tank I realized it. I do not want to return her though because she has paired up with another probable male angelfish and I do not want to separate them. Their colors are pretty and one of the angelfish changes color her stripes go from silver to black amazing. They are all very active I definitely will buy more in the future
