Diet:
Angelfish will eat almost anything you put in front of them. Usually they are fed flakes as a staple, with bloodworms and other meats being fed as a treat or to encourage breeding.

Breeding: Angelfish prefer to breed when the water is at higher temperatures near 80-82. Before breeding both the male and female will clean the surface of what they choose to lay eggs on for at least 1-2 days. Angelfish prefer to breed on broad leaved plants such as Amazon Sword or other flat surfaces such as a pot, slate, or even aquarium glass. After cleaning the surface they want to breed on, the female will lay rows of eggs with the male fertilizing each row as she finishes. The fertilized eggs will hatch after 2-3 days and infertile will turn a milky white and grow fungus. After hatching, the eggs are known as wrigglers. The wrigglers will become free swimming around 5 days later. The new free swimming fry should be fed live baby brine shrimp and Hikari First Bites. Water changes should be done daily to keep the fry healthy. Fry can be sold after reaching dime size.
