Angel Fish

Caring for your Angelfish

I do best in a group of five or more. I can become aggressive when breeding and am very territorial. I'm happy to share my tank with larger shoaling fish or docile bottom feeders.

I'm specific about water quality and need regular water changes to remain in the best health - poor water quality can result in me going on hunger strike.

King British Tropical Fish Mini Pellets make a great everyday diet, combined with King British Tropical Fish Food Mix, to keep me interested in food.
