Overview

The Gold Veil Angel will add drama and brilliance to your community aquarium. A beautiful strain of angelfish with golden/white coloration, the Gold Veil Angel has long, thin fins that typically extend past the length of the body. These graceful features combined with its striking color make the Gold Veil Angel a true standout in planted aquariums.

The Gold Veil Angel prefers a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium but maintain plenty of space for swimming.

When trying to breed the Gold Veil Angel, it is best 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 about a 30-degree angle 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 Gold Veil Angel 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.

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.
