Overview

Angelfish prefer to have plenty of swimming space. It also needs areas to hide and live rock to graze on. They will be territorial towards their own species and should be housed alone unless the tank is large enough for them to have their own space, in which case they should be introduced at the same time to reduce aggression. They will eat most fresh and frozen foods and require a spirulina, algae and mysis or frozen shrimp diet.
