Tropical Freshwater Angelfish are one of the most popular cichlids found in the hobby today. Aquarium owners are drawn to them because of their unique, elegant appearance, their mild mannered disposition and their inquisitive nature. Angelfish do not shy away from people observing them in the tank. They will swim right up to the glass and come up to the surface of the water when it is feeding time.
Besides their elegant beauty, Angelfish are also a popular choice due to their hardiness and ease of keeping. Both first time aquarium owners and seasoned pros can keep a shoal of angelfish in a beautiful aquarium display. They will tolerate a wide range of water conditions and will accept a wide range of foods.
For people looking at breeding and raising aquarium fish, the freshwater Angelfish is also a popular choice. When the tank maintenance is preformed regularly and water is kept optimal, a pair of Angelfish will spawn often, producing thousands of fry.
