Description

Check out our Koi Angelfish, the domesticated form of Pterophyllum scalare. At this time, we have standard fin, standard orange coverage, but other variants may be added.

Koi Angelfish are genetically blushers (two copies of the stripeless gene, S/S) and are generally comprised of either two Gold Marble Genes (Gm/Gm) or the Gold Marble and Gold gene (Gm/g). The amount of orange coloration is the result of secondary genetics through selective breeding, with some lines displaying more or less orange coverage. Prices of Koi Angelfish vary with fin type, size, and orange coverage, with higher degrees of orange coverage generally being more desired (but also harder to come by, and hence, more expensive).

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. The next generation of angelfish we’re offering are being produced by Alpha Aquatix, LLC, with some of their stock being direct descendants of our own projects.  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.
