Pterophyllum scalare(Marble Angelfish)
One of the most popular of all tropical fish, tank-bred specimens are hardy, adaptable, and easy to keep. In its normal form, the fish is silver, with three or four vertical black bands and a distinctive red eye. Artifical forms include the marble angel, golden angel, and veil-tail angel.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Angelfish are peaceful, schooling fish best kept in groups. They naturally inhabit areas thick with vegetation, and do well in planted tanks. While they are generally well behaved towards other fish, they are predatory, and will eat small species such as neons, glowlights, and danios. On the other hand, angelfish will be persecuted by nippy species such as serpae tetras, black widows, pufferfish, and tiger barbs.
Tank bred fish spawn readily, usually on large leaves or upright stones. They are notoriously unreliable as far as broodcare goes, with many fish simply eating the eggs soon after spawning. It is usually best for the aquarist to remove the parents and raise the fry manually. The eggs hatch after a day or so, and by the 5th day the fry are free swimming and able to eat newly hatched brine shrimp and liquid fry food.
