Pterophyllum scalare is one of the most popular tropical aquarium fish and has been kept by hobbyists for nearly 100 years. As such, there are many available morphs from solid white to solid black and everything in between. Angelfish make good community fish with mid to large sized tankmates, although their large adult size means especially small species such as cardinal tetras are generally best avoided.
This popular breed has the standard vertical bars of wild-type angels, but a silvery-blue base body colour. These individuals are about 1.5" long in the body.
