Remarks: Veil Tail Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) are easy-going cichlids that do well in almost any community tank. They can tolerate a wide range of pH values and are peaceful enough to be kept with most tetras and other peaceful cichlids. They have longer and more flowing fins than normal Angelfish.
Breeding Angelfish can often be achieved by giving them a vertical, flat surface to spawn on, such as a leaf of an Amazon Sword or a piece of slate leaning against the wall. Fry will be cared for until a few weeks after they are free swimming, though you can remove the fry or eggs and hatch them artificially if you wish.
