Bulgarian Green Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare)

31 In stock

Remarks: Bulgarian Green Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) are fairly new to the hobby, only appearing in the last 7-8 years in the US, and only in rare cases and short supply. They have platinum bodies with a green hue over the scales, but the true beauty is in the dorsal and anal fins. Both fins turn emerald green and create an amazing fish that stands out from all other Angels. They have been called "Bulgarian Seal Point" Angelfish in some circles.

Angelfish 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.

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.
