Altum AngelFish 

As the largest and unique member in its species and specimens, Altum AngelFish (scientific name: Pterophyllum altum) are the most sought by the fishkeeping community on the whole and AngelFish-loving hobbyists in specific.

Altum AngelFish, also called P. altum, appear in a lozenge-shaped figure with the natural base color of silver (with some blueish green near their fins) and three brownish/red vertical stripes spread over their body. The fish can reach 15 inches (~ 38 cm) in terms of size when matured, and tends to expand itself vertically rather than horizontally. This is a hint for you when choosing its tank. They absolutely prefer tall aquariums to long ones as these containers fit them and allow enough space for them to swim as well as interact with the fish community. Planting the tank densely is highly encouraged since it helps P.altum feel comfortable and secure. Generally, a single P. altum will live happily in a 20-gallon tank while a 55-gallon can nurture a group of three.

In wild habitat, P. altum lives in the well oxygenated, extremely soft waters of tributaries in South America with a pH range normally between 4.5 and 6.0. Temperature requirements should be between 78 and 84°F (26 and 29°C) and extremely clean and well-cycled water is crucial for them to survive. The P. altum is also known for its inability to deal with copper. Thus, you must be careful to check this substance in your aquarium. High-demanding as the fish are, P. altum is not appropriate for beginners.

Altum AngelFish have a peaceful disposition; however, it does not mean they are not a predator. Such personality explains why most aquarists recommend not keeping P.altum with other small species that can fit into their mouth, especially guppies and neon tetras [Ng check lại thông tin highlight vàng nha]. When it comes to diet, this fish would take live foods rather than other types although it can accept high-quality frozen/ dry foods.
