Angels (freshwater angels)

fish home

Angelfish (freshwater angels) have their origins in a large area of ​​tropical South America, including much of the Amazon river system. In their natural habitat, they are found almost exclusively in calm, slow-moving waters. In the wild, the freshwater angelfish prefers dimly lit areas, under overhanging vegetation or among trees that have fallen into a river.

 

Aquarium requirements

An upland freshwater angelfish accepts a wide range of water conditions, though it prefers slightly warmer waters. The pH of an angel fish tank should be between 6.8 and 7.8, the temperature is best kept between 78 degrees and 84 degrees Fahrenheit. While maintaining good water filtration, change the water at 10% weekly or 25% every two weeks using an aquarium water changer or a siphon vacuum. Do not forget to treat the tap water with an ACION water conditioner before refilling the tank .

Angelfish (freshwater angels) grow very large and will require a 55-gallon or larger aquarium when they are fully grown. It is preferable that fish tanks be long tanks because they are the best, to suit the shape of their bodies. The flow of water in the tank should be gentle, and the decor of the fish tank should include large, broad-leaved plants and driftwood arranged vertically to simulate fallen branches and trees. A few floating plants can also be added to provide shaded areas and cover. The gravel must have a smooth surface.

 

the behavior

While angelfish (freshwater angels) are generally peaceful fish, they are a member of the tilapia family and can be aggressive towards fish in captivity, especially when pairing and breeding. They will also not hesitate to eat small fish. Like most fish, they are opportunistic and will eat anything that fits in their mouths. That is why experts advise breeding freshwater angels fish in special ponds.

Freshwater angels feed on the surface or in the middle of the water It is preferable to feed them daily in ponds some flakes or pellets of their own , however, in nature they often feed along the bottom in search of worms and small crustaceans. It is a carnivorous fish.

 

The distinction between male and female

Male and female angelfish always look the same, and it is difficult to distinguish between them, but during the breeding period, it is easy to distinguish, because a mass will appear on the body of a female freshwater angel. Anus and pelvic fins, when carrying an angel fish, this mass will increase in size.

 

angelfish breeding

Angel fish (freshwater angels) are easy to mate and reproduce. It cleans flat vertical surfaces to lay eggs and repel other fish. Spawning occurs when the female lays eggs on a prepared surface, and the male follows them to fertilize them. Unfortunately, most freshwater angelfish in captivity have lost their reproductive instinct and usually eat eggs or larvae. To solve this problem, breeders are urged to lay pairs of eggs on vertically cut boards or other materials, and to transfer them to empty fish tanks for breeding..
