Buy Clarion Angelfish online. Large Angels are among the most popular fish for the home saltwater aquarium, and most marine angelfish adapt well to captivity. The diet of Large Angels consists of microalgaes, macroalgaes, sponges, and zooplankton. Angelfish are some of the most colorful and uniquely patterned species of saltwater aquarium fish – for many aquarium hobbyists, these fish are the reason they start a saltwater tank. Not only are these fish beautiful to behold, but they are also a joy to keep in the home aquarium. Many species of saltwater angelfish are very hardy by nature and they often adapt well to life in captivity. Saltwater angelfish belong to the family Pomacanthidae which contains over 80 different species.

These fish are found primarily in the shallow reefs of tropical regions in the Atlantic and Indian oceans as well as the western portion of the Pacific. This group of fishes is known for its brilliant colors and unique patterns which set them apart from other saltwater species and make them stand out in the reef environment. These fish are very similar in appearance to butterflyfish but they can be distinguished by the strong spines present in their gill covers – angelfish are also generally more adaptable to captivity than butterflyfish. Most angelfish species exhibit laterally compressed bodies with small mouths and large pectoral fins. Many species also have long extensions streaming out from the dorsal and anal fins. Though size varies according to species, the average size is between 8 and 12 inches for most angelfish.

The largest species of angelfish, the Gray angelfish (Pomacantus arcuatus) can reach a length of 24 inches at maturity. In the wild, angelfish generally stick to shallow reef environments, rarely venturing more than 150 feet deep. Most angelfish are diurnal, feeding during the day and hiding among the rocks and crevices in the reef at night.

Tank Requirements

Though angelfish can be very hardy in the home aquarium, it is important that the tank environment is set up to their preferred specifications if you want them to thrive. To start, you must have the aquarium up and running for at least 3 months before you add your angelfish to ensure that the nitrogen cycle is fully established in the tank. You will still need to perform routine water changes during this time to keep the ammonia and nitrite levels in your tank under control.
