Description

These domestic strain Standard Fin Albino Angelfish, Pterophyllum scalare, are potentially “het” for the Philippine Blue Gene.

Albino Angelfish are more difficult to produce than their standard counterparts. As fry they are very sensitive to light, and can easily be reared blind, belly sliding, or even prevented from feeding if too much light is applied. Interestingly, they are also smaller upon hatching, and in our own experience, require the smaller San Francisco Bay strain of brine shrimp nauplii for first feeding. If they are produced by heterozygous parents, they may even require being separated from their normally pigmented siblings, otherwise they may fail to compete and thrive in the rearing environment.

MiniWaters really got it’s start as a wholesaler producing freshwater Angelfish. In mid 2014, due to massive winter storm damage that took nearly a year to repair, we had to sell off most all of our Angelfish broodstock, with the few things we held back sold in 2015. Now, the sales of our broodstock are starting to pay dividends, with the next generation of angelfish being produced by Alpha Aquatix, LLC.  We’re happy to offer domestic angelfish, hatched and reared in Minnesota. Angelfish are generally sold by body size, exclusive of fins, so a dime-sized Angelfish = body size of a US dime, nickel = nickel, quarter = quarter and so forth. Typically our sizes are minimum..if you order dime, you’re going to get dime or bigger.
