A Lesser-known Angelfish

Brian Scott

Recommended Posts

Leopold's angelfish (Pterophyllum leopoldi) from the Rio Demini in Brazil.  These angels are similar to the common wild-type silver angels, but don't grow quite as large.  They have a rounded head and their fins are generally shorter.  They can be quite quarrelsome among each other, so a fairly spacious aquarium with lots of plants and / or driftwood would be well advised so as to provide ample visual barriers and retreats.

Definitely one of my all time favorite angelfish and I think they were hands down my wife's all time favorite fish because they were so low maintenance.


I maintained a school of 50 of them in my big aquarium for several years.



What size did they max out at 🤷🏼‍♂️
