Introduction: Step into the world of elegance and grace with the Black Angel fish, a captivating addition to your aquarium. Known for their striking appearance and peaceful demeanor, these fish are sure to mesmerize both novice and experienced aquarists.

Scientific Name: The Black Angel fish is scientifically known as Pterophyllum scalare.

Water Quality:

  • Temperature: Maintain a tropical environment with temperatures ranging from 75°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C).
  • pH Level: Keep the water slightly acidic to neutral, with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.5, to ensure their well-being.
  • GH Level: Aim for a General Hardness (GH) of 3 to 10 dGH for their optimal health.
  • KH Level: Ensure a Carbonate Hardness (KH) level of 1 to 5 dKH to maintain water stability.

Feeding: Black Angel fish are omnivorous and have a hearty appetite. Offer them high-quality pellets or flakes as their primary diet, supplemented with occasional treats like frozen or live foods such as bloodworms and brine shrimp.

Tank Mates:

  • Peaceful Community Fish: These gentle angels can coexist harmoniously with other peaceful community fish such as tetras, rasboras, and corydoras.
  • Avoid Aggressive Species: It’s best to steer clear of aggressive or fin-nipping fish to prevent conflicts and stress.

Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a soft substrate like sand to mimic their natural habitat. Add plenty of hiding spots using driftwood, rocks, and tall plants to create a secure and inviting environment.

Suitable Plants: Adding live plants like Amazon Swords and Java Fern not only enhances the beauty of the aquarium but also offers shelter and grazing spots for the Black Angel fish.

Sexing: Sexing adult Black Angel fish can be challenging, but males may have a more pointed anal fin compared to the females.

Breeding: Breeding Black Angel fish can be a rewarding experience. Provide flat surfaces, such as large leaves or slate, for the females to lay eggs on. Both parents will actively participate in caring for the fry.

Maximum Size and Longevity: Black Angel fish can grow up to 5 to 6 inches (12 to 15 cm) in size. With proper care, they can live up to 10 years or more, offering you years of enjoyment and companionship.

General Information: Black Angel fish are named for their deep, dark coloration and distinctive triangular shape, making them an eye-catching centerpiece for any aquarium.

A Fun Fact: Did you know that Black Angel fish are also known as “Peruvian Altum” due to their origins in the Amazon River Basin and their close resemblance to the true Altum Angel fish? These majestic creatures will surely captivate and elevate the aesthetics of your aquatic paradise!
