Blue Angels

This is a blue angelfish.

I purchased this angel along with 10 others several months ago from a breeder in Pennsylvania, who shipped the fish direct to my door.

This is a female who has already selected as her mate a rare Siamese angelfish who is white with fins that go from white to black tips.

When I received the two angels, their bodies were about the size of a quarter. They are now about 5 inches tall and may grow to twice that size.

They share a 60-gallon tank with five other angels, about a dozen corydoras and a plecostomus.
