We are simply ecstatic to be able to offer this variety of angelfish. We’ve seen these fish entering the trade under a wide range of names: Rio Nanay, Peruvian Altum, Spotted, Black Spotted, Red Spotted Angelfish and so forth. The trade names are a crazy mess, and ordering sight unseen has personally lead to a fair amount of disappointment over the years. But this time, you can see the parents for yourself, you know what they are. They are the fish you’re looking for, and they’re F1, first generation from wild caught parents. On top of it all, bringing these Peruvian Red Spot Angelfish to market has helped support a fledgling small business here in the midwest, and it puts an exceptional caliber of angelfish into the hands of both our wholesale LFS customers (if you have a shop, contact us to get on our wholesale pricelist) as well as private hobbyists around the country who’ve been longing for an exceptionally attractive wild-type angelfish fitting the general conception of a “Peruvian Altum”.
Check out this amazing footage of the wild broodstock in action, raising up a clutch of F1 awesomeness! These are THE parents of the fish offered here.
Angelfish are generally sold by body size, exclusive of fins, so a dime-sized Angelfish = average 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 an average of dime or bigger.
