The Angel Marble, also known as the Marble Angelfish or Pterophyllum scalare, is a beautiful and popular freshwater fish species that is highly regarded for its elegant appearance and graceful swimming behavior. This fish has captivated aquarium enthusiasts worldwide, making it a sought-after addition to community tanks.
Origin: The Angel Marble originates from the Amazon River basin in South America, primarily found in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia. It inhabits slow-moving rivers, streams, and flooded forests.
Temperature: The ideal water temperature for Angel Marble is around 75°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C). Maintaining stable water temperatures is crucial for their well-being.
Housing: For keeping Angel Marble, it is recommended to have a spacious tank of at least 20 gallons, though a larger tank is preferable, especially for a group of these fish. They appreciate a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding spots, driftwood, and rocks to mimic their natural habitat. Good water quality with efficient filtration is essential, along with regular water changes.
Feeding: Angel Marble is an omnivorous species, meaning they eat both plant matter and small live or frozen foods. Their diet can include high-quality flake or pellet foods, as well as frozen or live brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia. A varied diet ensures they receive all the necessary nutrients for good health and vibrant coloration.
Lifespan: With proper care, Angel Marble can live for up to 10 years or even longer. A well-maintained environment and a balanced diet contribute to their longevity.
Behavior and Personality: Angel Marble is known for its peaceful and social nature, making it an excellent choice for community tanks with other non-aggressive fish species. However, they can become territorial during breeding and may exhibit aggression towards their own kind. They are excellent swimmers and have a graceful and calming presence in the aquarium.
