Assorted 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.

Approximate Purchase Size: 3/4" to 1-1/2"

I recently ordered & received 3 jumbo veil angels,( including gold, smokey leopard& marble. All came quickly ,& in very good condition. I am very pleased with the results, I only have one problem. I would love to get a black jumbo veil angel to complete the set. I have them in a 75 gal. tank, so space is not a problem

Disappointed with the fish I got. Order processing time was super quick and no bumps with the next day delivery, no complaints with this part at all. The Angel's I received I am disappointed with though and wish I had purchased elsewhere for the money I spent. I bought 10 of the small size. What I got was 5 Golden Veils and 5 Black Marble veils, size was more of a medium, not small. I would have preferred smaller fish as advertised to watch them grow up. I did leave a note in my order to please send the smallest fish too. For types of Angel's I do realize that what I got for this assorted mix was random and dependant on current stock, but since I ordered 10, I really thought I would have gotten more variety then what I did. Healthwise, they are not bad. Some tattered tails, but that seems to be pretty common with veiltails. High quality water, food and some med's in case should correct it. I did loose 1 Angel the following morning, but that can be expected from time to time and since I will likely not order from here in the future, I won't bother trying to get a credit for that fish. Other reviews are great but in my case, I wish I had ordered direct from a breeder online, would have cost me just a bit cheaper and was guarenteed 4 different varieties.

WONDERFUL service!!! When first order came I ordered 6 of these angels I only got 3, but customer service was outstanding! One of the 3 died before the 14 days were up so they sent me 4 more beautiful angels!
