Angelfish Care

How to take care of angelfish

  1. UglyAsian
    Angelfish enjoy an aquarium of at least 29 gallons, preferably a 40 or 55. Single angelfish, pairs or schools are best. Never have 3 angelfish. It is best to have an even number of them, with the exception of one. They can be aggressive, though not often. They are fine with peaceful fish larger than an inch. Best tankmates include tetras(No nippy ones), plecos, catfish, and livebearers (they may eat fry). Best temperature for them is 78-82 degrees, and they enjoy tall plants to lurk in, as that is their natural behavior. They will eat flakes, all frozen foods, live foods (Not feeder fish) and pellets.

    I would have liked it to include their breeding behavior, and that they do best in taller tanks. Overall this article is okay but it could have been longer and more descriptive. I hope this counts as CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. :)

      Ok, thanks. I thought saying the tank size min would work. I don't breed and never have bred angelfish, so I don't have much experience with that

    It's a very general care guide, the size of the aquarium in my opinion should be taller to accomodate for the angelfish's long body.

      I said 55 or 40 was recommended. The size req is usually different between people. I thought 55 was a good size. Any ideas how to make it better? It was only the second article i wrote
