It is extremely important to provide the correct environment when attempting to breed Angelfish. The aquarium should be spacious and include plenty of vegetation in order to provide a suitable habitat for the angels to pair off. Furthermore, 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. Once the eggs are laid, the fry can be fed newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food. With the right conditions and care, Angelfish can be successfully bred in the aquarium.

This fish is known to be a fascinating addition to any aquarium. It needs to be fed a variety of foods, including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.
