overviewAssorted Veil Angels are an assortment of strains of the long finned varieties, and are available in an adult size. These fish may include marble veils, gold veils, or silver veils, and will add drama and brilliance to the passive community aquarium.
These fish prefer a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming.
It is best, when trying to breed the Angelfish, to house a number of angels in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, a flat surface needs to be provided where the eggs can be laid. A piece of slate, a large plant leaf, or even a flowerpot should be positioned at an angle of about 30 degrees in an area of moderate water flow. The female will lay the eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize. After approximately three days, the eggs will hatch and the fry will emerge. Feed the fry newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food.
The Assorted Veil Angelfish needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.
This item ships as one individual fish. If more than one fish is ordered, you may receive more than one color variety of veil angelfish or multiples of the same color variety.
Freshwater Angelfish are measured at TL (Total Length) which means your fish will be measured from the tip of its nose to the end of its tail.
