Angelfish is known scientifically as Pterophyllum scalare. They have shapes and a variety of colors. It is a very appreciated fish for those who like aquariums. It was discovered in Brazil in 1823, and from there began the classification of this species.
The angelfish lives in the calm waters of rivers. The waters of these rivers are populated with algae and other plants that create a compact plant mass, which is why the body of the angelfish is characterized by being thin and elongated.
In this way, its physical structure adapts to the environment and helps it to move through the vegetation without getting trapped. The body of the angelfish has the shape of a disc and is flat.
When the angelfish swims, it keeps its body upwards, and with its large fins, Doral, pectoral, and ventral, the fish gives the appearance of being very large.
The angelfish draws attention for its majesty by its stylized shape, which contributes to the arrangement of its fins, which makes it look bigger than it is. They can live approximately 5 to 8 years.
It is about 15 cm long. The dorsal and anal fins are large and form a triangle in the general appearance of the fish. There are no considerable differences between the male and female. The caudal fin is also significant, and the abdominals have become two long radii of up to 8 cm.
In captivity, “veil” and “super veil” varieties have been obtained, which are more showy and attractive since their fins are much longer, with the anal fin measuring four times more than the body length.
The angelfish is a very territorial animal and has a rather complex behavior when it comes to reproduction. It is a species where both members of the couple are involved in caring for the fry, especially in the initial phase of breeding.
The behavior of angelfish pairs suggests that they are monogamous, with the specimens tending to mate with only one partner. Although it has been recorded that every few mating cycles, males usually change partners.
