Keeping angelfish in an aquarium
Angel fish are a popular species of freshwater fish that are often kept in home aquariums. Here are a few things to consider when keeping angelfish in an aquarium:

  • Aquarium size: Angelfish require a minimum tank size of 30 gallons, but a larger tank is preferred for a healthy and comfortable environment.

  • Water conditions: Angelfish require water with a pH of 6.5 to 7.5, a water hardness of 5-20 dGH, and a temperature of 76-82°F. Regular water changes and monitoring of water parameters are crucial to maintain the health of angelfish.

  • Diet: Angelfish are omnivores and will eat both plant and animal matter. Offer a variety of foods such as flakes, pellets, frozen and live foods like brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia.

  • Tank mates: Angelfish can be aggressive towards other fish, especially those of similar shape and color. It is best to keep them with other peaceful, non-competing species such as tetras, rasboras, and gouramis.

  • Decor: Angelfish appreciate some vegetation in the aquarium, but be careful not to overcrowd the tank, as they need plenty of swimming space.

  • Breeding: Angelfish can be bred in the aquarium if conditions are right, but it requires a separate breeding tank and a lot of experience.

By providing the proper care and environment, angelfish can be kept in an aquarium for several years and will bring beauty and personality to your aquarium setup.
