Name: Pterophyllum scalare

The Amazon Angelfish has always been an all-time favorite among many aquarists. It's almost impossible to find a hobbyist who has never had at least one. The angels' lack of bright coloration is compensated by their unique, beautiful fins and by the variety of patterns which have been achieved through many decades of selective breeding. In this tank, we've decided to collect several of these different varieties. Oddly enough, the hardest one to find has been the original Silver Angel (silver with 3 vertical stripes). All 6 angels are still juvenile, having a "main disk" diameter of 3 to 5 cm. Be sure to click on More above to see the others.
