What Types Of Aquarium Angelfish Species Are There

Jun 12, 2008
If you want to spice up the look of your aquarium then add an Angelfish. An Angelfish can add color and excitement to any home aquarium and you will never be short on choices as there are more than twenty varieties of Angelfish to choose from.

Varieties of Angelfish

One of the most popular aquarium fish species is the dwarf Angelfish. Because of its small size, the dwarf Angelfish is perfect for a small home aquarium. Here are some types of dwarf Angelfish that you can buy:

- The Coral beauty Angelfish has a red body with bluish-black and orange fins. It is easy to care for and will grow to a maximum size of four inches.
- The Eibli Angelfish has a tan body with vertical brown stripes and very distinctive black blotches that cover the entirety of the back of the fish. It will grow to a length of six inches
- The Flame Angelfish can safely live in a reef tank. This dwarf aquarium Angelfish species is six inches long and has an orange-red body with black strips running from top to bottom.

The Orange-black Angelfish is another popular aquarium fish species. This three-inch long, dark blue fish has a golden blaze that runs from the face down the dorsal fin.

Difficult Dwarf Angelfish To Maintain

There are some Angelfish which are difficult to take care of these are:

- Herald's Angelfish is four inches long and is a buttery lemon yellow, with a brown accent at the eye. The Herald's Angelfish survives mainly on algae so make sure and give it a good spirulina formula.
- The Lemonpeel Angelfish is bright yellow with a dark semicircle near the eye. Provide plenty of shelter for hiding. Best kept in aquariums with ample algae and other live rock growth.
- Barred Angelfish is only four inches long, with black and white vertical strips extending from head to tail.
- Potter's Angelfish is yet another difficult aquarium fish species to own. It is a beautiful fish, with a blue body and reddish fins.

Omnivorous Fish Species

Dwarf Angelfish will thrive in their environment and provide you with many enjoyable hours of fish watching. All dwarf Angelfish are omnivores, eating both animals and vegetables. Macro-algae are their vegetable matter of choice. Dwarf angelfish need an aquarium with plenty of hiding places and prefer a tank with live rock and lots of forage (allow that algae to grow on non-living surfaces). Only one member of a given species should be housed in an aquarium unless that aquarium is VERY large. Dwarf angelfish often display aggression toward other dwarf angelfish -if you are going to house two species in the same aquarium, add them at the same time.
