Marble Veil Angel

The Marble Veil Angel is a strain of angelfish that has a black, white, and yellow marbled pattern. The fins are long and thin with delicate-looking webbing, and will typically extend past the length of the body.

It prefers a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming.

It is best, when trying to breed the Marble Veil Angel, to house a number of angels in the same aquarium until they pair off. After a pair has developed, a flat surface needs to be provided where the eggs can be laid. A piece of slate, a large plant leaf, or even a flowerpot should be positioned at an angle of about 30 degrees in an area of moderate water flow. The female will lay the eggs and the male will follow behind to fertilize. After approximately three days, the eggs will hatch and the fry will emerge. Feed the fry newly hatched brine shrimp until large enough to accept crushed flake food.

The Marble Veil Angel needs to be fed a variety of foods including vegetables as well as meaty foods. Feed a quality flake food as well as live and frozen foods such as brine shrimp and bloodworms.

Angels are simple and enjoyable to watch,especially if you give them live food to eat such as tadpoles and small fish.

i got mine as a gift at a large size and it was missing one of its long skinny fins in the front. it took a while to make this fish happy in my tank, it wasn’t eating for the longest it got cloudy eye every now and then, i could barely figure how it stayed alive not eating. all my other fish were okay. after a long quest in finding what was wrong, it was a simple as adjusting the temp of my tank, THIS FISH LIVE IN WARMER WATERS, at least 80 degrees. now he/she is a happy camper. Very smart, almost like a dog in water if only i could teach it tricks. great personality, but requires certain conditions to stay healthy i would say this is the most sensitive, health wise out of all my fish.
