wildcaught angelfish group of 5
Pterophyllum Scalare, or angelfish are often found in Brazil and the lower Amazon river. Some angelfish can even reach up to Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, and Guyana. These freshwater angels can reach up to a full length of 6 inches and sometimes even grow longer dorsal fins in the wild as the males tend to be larger than females. They have a wide variety towards their diet that can consist of flakes, small pieces of shrimp, tilapia, bloodworms, small fish, and even pick on plants from time to time. Wild angels have a yellow-toned head with silver bodies that glow iridescent, shining colors of blue and green with black vertical strips along the body with red rims around the eyes.
