The Angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) is a large, flat species of fish indigenous to the Amazon. The "platinum” angelfish is a mutation of angelfish with the an all white body and fins.

These animals grow to be quite large (up to 10 inches in length), and prefer a well-planted tank of at least 30 gallons with soft, slightly acidic water. Rocks and driftwood can be added to the aquarium, but leave plenty of space for swimming.

These animals will become more aggressive as they grow. They can be kept with other angelfish, some smaller South American cichlid species, large tetra species, barbs, and knife fish. Always check the compatibility of the animals you have with the animals you plan on adding to your aquarium.
