Angelfish require a range of vitamins, proteins, and minerals in order to stay healthy. Being omnivorous species they will consume both plant- and animal-based food sources.
Overfeeding angel fish may cause digestive distress and adversely impact water quality as uneaten food decays into ammonia-releasing waste products into their water environment.
Results of this study demonstrated that sudden weaning of angelfish larvae from Artemia nauplii to dry-formulated feed on the 14th day of production is feasible without adversely impacting growth performance.
Angels + Flake
Angelfish are highly sought-after aquarium fish, frequently seen for sale at pet shops. Due to their semi-aggressive behavior, angelfish should ideally be kept in pairs or small groups as they may chase away other fish or become aggressive towards any potential intruders in their tank.
These fish are omnivorous, eating various forms of food including pellets and flake. To meet their dietary requirements efficiently, it’s essential that a variety of food items be provided as they quickly deplete nutrients, proteins and energy reserves.
This freeze-dried angelfish food is an ideal way of providing your fish with a complete diet that contains all of the necessary vitamins and minerals they require for good health. Conveniently packaged in a resealable bag for long-term freshness. Containing dried algae, plant matter, shrimp and worms for an all-round nutrition.
Angels + Pellets
Angelfish fish quickly deplete their supplies of vitamins, fats and proteins; therefore, providing a varied diet that fulfills all their dietary requirements is key. Tetra cichlid food includes an abundance of fats for energy. Furthermore, fortifying them with stabilized vitamin C increases their natural immunity to help ensure better fight off illnesses.
These sinking pellets are excellent choices for mid column and bottom feeding angelfish of all varieties, providing plenty of raw protein while being packed full of essential vitamins and minerals too.
These flakes are composed largely of whole krill, an irresistibly nutritious source of protein for all fish. Plus, they come packed with plenty of other essential vitamins and minerals too! Use these as replacement bloodworms, but make sure that other food items are added into their diet for a balanced meal plan!
Angels + Shrimp
Angelfish are predatory fish that view shrimp as prey, making them poor tank mates for delicate shrimp species that require specific water conditions that do not accommodate Angelfish – potentially leading to stress and disease outbreak.
Keeping Angelfish and shrimp together requires careful water management and providing enough hiding spots in your aquarium for both species to flourish. Consider keeping Vampire Shrimp or Wood Shrimp (Atya gabonensis or Atyopsis moluccensis). They’re less likely to be targeted by Angelfish while still needing protection in case any sudden shifts occur in water levels or their conditions change rapidly.
To achieve optimal results, add shrimp first and then Angelfish; this will allow time for them to establish territories and hiding spots and reduce predation and stress levels. Finally, feed both live food as well as flake foods to satiate them and maintain water health in your aquarium.
Angels + Worms
Angelfish require a diet rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Their diet should include foods such as flakes, pellets and live or frozen brine shrimp, daphnia or bloodworms for optimal health.
When feeding angelfish, ensure the food you provide contains only food specifically made for aquarium fish without fillers or chemicals. Consider quality flake or pellet food specially created for aquatic environments instead of brands advertising “fish food”.
Your angelfish should be fed frozen or live food at least several times every week, using only fresh guppy fry or feeder guppies that have been carefully sourced to avoid diseases or parasites.
Angelfishes can often become aggressive when breeding, so it is wise to keep them away from fish that will nibble at their fins or that are predatory/aggressive towards other cichlids or barbs that might try to take a bite of them.
