Marble Blue Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare Sp) are now available at Michael's Fish Room! The Marble Blue Angelfish is a new variant that has a black and metallic blue marbled body. This is a very beautiful high contrasting fish. Each one is unique to itself. They are a beautiful addition to any community tank or make for a great breeding project. Marble Blue Angelfish prefer a well-planted aquarium of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming. They prefer plants to swim in and out of and hide from other fish if needed, These fish make a perfect centerpiece fish for a community aquarium. It is best when trying to breed Angelfish, to house a number of angels in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, a flat surface needs to be provided where the eggs can be laid. A piece of slate, a large plant leaf, or even a flowerpot should be positioned at an angle of about 30 degrees in an area of moderate water flow. The female will lay the eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize. After approximately three days, the eggs will hatch and the fry will emerge. Feed the fry newly hatched baby brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food. Angelfish need to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed quality flake food, quality pellets in a variety of formulas, as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms. Most of the Northfin line would be perfect. All can be purchased at  KJE Aquatics. Plecos make great tank mates for Angelfish, see them here.
