Angelfish & Butterflyfish

Angel fishes are considered to be the most popular fishes for marine aquarium. Earlier they were regarded as the sub-family of butterfly fishes since basically they are similar animals. Today one knows a lot of differences between angel-and butterfly fishes – yet we show them in single category on our online shop. Out of more than 85 species of the angel fishes, the dwarf angel fishes centropyge and paracentropyge, the actually big angel fish and the regal angel fish are those which are especially kept very often in the aquarium. In aquarium it must be considered that the tanks are sufficiently large enough. In case of dwarf angel fishes we recommend an aquarium size of at least 350l-500l. The tanks should be very well structured. Butterfly fishes reach a size between 12cm-20cm and thus have similar requirements for aquarium size. However they are very good swimmers, so the tank size with Chelmon rostratus in any case should not be less than 500l. Especially popular are Chaetodons and Chelmon rostratus Orangenbinden blackfin coralfish which we offer on our shop as fixed-feed fishes.

Keeping angel fishes and butterflly fish

"The most beautiful inhabitant! "

Angel fishes!

Angel fishes live in the reefs of Indian –and Pacific ocean and build strong territories which they defend against conspecifics. So the young angel fishes have a completely different colour in the juvenile stage: They are not frightened away by their own parents from the territory. Most of the angel fishes live together in pairs or small harem groups which consists of a male and several females.

Feeding and nutrition of angel fishes

Angel fishes feed mainly on algae and small animals. Dwarf angel fish gladly feeds on zooplankton like Mysis or Artemia, however green feed like algae etc. should be fed regularly to them. Dwarf angel fish and angel fish can attack the corals but there are many examples which show that the corals do not even touch them. There is always a basic possibility.

Feed butterfly fish and Chelmon rostratus

Butterfly fishes are demanding with regards to food. The known Chelmon rostratus forceps fish is especially used instead of aiptasia plague. However it depends on the individual animal whether this natutrally kills the aiptasia plague or not. However the butterfly fishes and forceps fishes can attack corals, tubeworms or clams which should be considered. It proves to be an advantage if the tanks have a service life of few months. So it is ensured that there are enough naturally existing zooplankton which the fishes can feed on during the sometimes sensitive familiarization. Naturally you can feed zooplankton by regular addition of NYOS Instant Plankton.
