Angels (Pterophyllum)

Pterophyllum is a small genus of freshwater fish from the family Cichlidae known to most aquarists as "Angelfish". All Pterophyllum species originate from the Amazon River, Orinoco River and Essequibo River basins in tropical South America. The three species of Pterophyllum are unusually shaped for cichlids being greatly laterally compressed, with round bodies and elongated triangular dorsal and anal fins. This body shape allows them to hide among roots and plants, often on a vertical surface. Angelfish are ambush predators and prey on small fish and macroinvertebrates. All Pterophyllum species form monogamous irs. Eggs are generally laid on a submerged log or a flattened leaf.Products in this Category: 1
