Albino Angel (Pterophyllum sp.)


Staff member
The Albino Angel is a strain of angelfish that is white to silver in color with yellow/orange coloration across the head and has pink eyes.

It prefers a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming.

It is best, when trying to breed the Albino Angel, to house a number of angels in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, a flat surface needs to be provided where the eggs can be laid. A piece of slate, a large plant leaf, or even a flowerpot should be positioned at an angle of about 30 degrees in an area of moderate water flow. The female will lay the eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize. After approximately three days, the eggs will hatch and the fry will emerge. Feed the fry newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food.

The Albino Angel needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.

Freshwater Angelfish are measured at TL (Total Length) which means your fish will be measured from the tip of its nose to the end of its tail.
Approximate Purchase Size:
1/2" to 1-1/2"

Even though I have never raised this species of fish, I think you need a pretty big aquarium if you want to raise this variety of fish. They can grow as big as 6 inches. You need an aquarium of at least 30 gallons in size. On the positive side, they live upto 8 years, therefore, you can have your pets for a long time.
