What angelfish shall I get?

Post  Bradsfish on Wed 02 Sep 2015, 20:42

So I am currently upgrading my turtle tank to a 125 gallon and I have its 60 gallon in storage so I am going to buy some pingu guppies (search them they are interesting) and a pair of angels. But what angels do you recommend a beginner getting,aggression,parenting,colours, and size are important. And if anyone sells a type of angelfish recommended I would like to enquire about purchasing them.

Thank you,Bradley

If you want to avoid any hassles, avoid wild caught fish, but most angels you'll see are tank bred. There are three species of angel, Pterophyllum altum, P. leopoldii & P. scalare. Most angels you'll encounter are P. scalare, if you see any of the others they're almost certainly wild caught, more temperamental, and come with a price tag to match.
In terms of colour varieties, there's not much to choose between them, but black angels can be both more aggressive, and more prone to being attacked. Beyond that choose the ones you like the look of.

I've Been looking and I really like the blue marble angelfish,

I've got some nice ones at £12.90 each.
my shop's near Gloucester, so that's probably a couple of hours drive.
Alternatively, we can now ship £17.50 for orders over £25.

Ok thank you I am just waiting for all my fish to be moved from one tank to another atm so it should be about a month until I can order one from you. Do you have any blue marble pairs?

Not proven pairs, there are almost certainly males & females amongst the ones we have, although they are siblings, & I wouldn't particularly recommend pairing them up.
One option might be to pair one with a less closely related blue smokey, however, probably best to get your tank ready first, and then, once you're ready, I'll see what I have available that would make a good pairing.
