Angelfish offer a wonderful selection of specimens that are quite resistant to a wide variety of colors and sizes. The smallest are suitable for a medium sized aquarium, however the great need much space. In the wild they feed on sponges, bryozoans, and other live food, but fortunately accept frozen food and dry food even when they are in the aquarium. When they are juveniles, they feed on plankton.

The genus Centropyge contains most of the small Los Angeles, which reach a maximum size of four inches. One exception is C. Bicolor angelfish blue and gold, which is very attractive but it grows too much and is difficult to maintain. Of the rest, and there are numerous species, is particularly recommended dark angel fish, angelfish lemon peel, golden angel fish, angelfish and flaming. They all have beautiful colors and are easy to maintain. The other genus, Lamarck’s angelfish is a nice contrast in black and gray.

The genus Pomacanthus Angels includes many of the larger, most of whom suffer dramatic changes of color as they mature. Some of those with different liveries most adults, young people can easily confuse. Semicircle angelfish in its juvenile phase has white stripes on a blue-black, but it becomes an adult rather sad that grows to 40 cm. Long. Emperor angelfish also has white stripes on blue background, but these grooves are concentric circles complete, and grow just enough to become a magnificent fish with yellow horizontal stripes. The blue ring angelfish is practically vertical stripes in blue and white and becomes an adult with blue stripes on a brown background. All of them are angels in the Pacific.

Atlantic Angels same genus have yellow stripes on black background in his youth and the two most common species, the gray angelfish and French angelfish are virtually indistinguishable. Adults also are quite similar and grow much, with gray or black and yellow trim on the scales. Other Atlantic angelfish come from Holacanthus genre. Some are great when they are adults, particularly the queen angelfish and blue angelfish. The juveniles are quite similar, with blue vertical bars. The beauty of rock is an extremely popular, robust and slow growth-an advantage when taking into account that these Angels can grow to about 30 cm. or more.

The genus Euxiphipops includes two of LA’s most sought after fish, angel fish blue belt and yellow-faced angelfish. Both are somewhat less resistant than the rest of the Angels, but it’s worth keeping in a reasonably large tank. They can grow to more than 30 cm. as most Pomacantidos. Finally, I must mention another angel spectacular Pygoplites diacanthus, royal empress angelfish, to warn of its complex nature. Very few survive in captivity refuse to eat food is not reaching enough to stay alive.
