Altum Angelfish (Pterophyllum altum)

Description:

The Altum Angelfish, hailed as one of the pinnacles of the freshwater aquarium hobby, originates from the deep, slow-moving waters of the Orinoco River basin in South America. Renowned for its elegant striped patterning and tall body profile, this species presents a majestic addition to any spacious tank setup.

Special Note:

Our Altum Angelfish have been quarantined for over 2 months and have shown exceptional stability with tap water conditions. They proudly display their original fins and tail, boasting an excellent and complete body shape, ready for any aquarium setup.

Features:

  • Distinguished by a striped pattern and tall body
  • Peaceful demeanor but can show territorial behavior amongst its kind
  • Ideal for larger tank setups

How to Keep:

While Altum Angelfish are naturally found in soft, slightly acidic waters, our specific stock has adapted to a broader range of water conditions, making them suitable for various setups. A tall tank is recommended due to their high body structure. These fish thrive in dimly lit tanks with dense vegetation and driftwood. A combination of flake, pellet, and live foods makes up their preferred diet. It's worth noting their territorial behavior, especially during the breeding season.
