Saltwater Angelfish

 What is a Saltwater Angelfish?
           Saltwater angelfish are among the most beautiful of all reef creatures. Their colors are deep and rich and often cleverly painted by Neptune into stripes and spots. These fish are found in all the world's oceans, although the greatest diversity of this group is found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean in rocky areas and reefs where they feast on the abundant coral. Despite their delicate appearance, once acclimated to your tank angelfish are incredibly hardy and can be a long-time resident of your aquarium.Saltwater angelfish can be distinguished from the very similar butterfly fish by the spine found on the lower gill cover of the angelfish.Saltwater angelfish also tend to become very territorial as they mature, and so it is generally recommended that you keep a single specimen. And although these species can be rather territorial, they are among the most popular aquarium fish.Because they feed on sponge and tunicate, saltwater angelfish are yet considered difficult fish to keep. Today there are prepared angel formulas containing sponge, but it can often be difficult to get an angel to accept new foods.
          In terms of choosing marine aquarium or reef aquarium you plan to set up often begins with the choice of saltwater angelfish species you would like to keep in it. Besides personal preferences, there are many other important issues to be taken into consideration: each marine fish's adult size, behavior, water preferences, feeding habits, compatibility with other saltwater species and, in modern fish keeping, environmental awareness is extremely important. Saltwater angelfish can be put in aquariums. Some angelfish lovers prefer to put their angelfishes in aquariums for it was very good to look at, especially the colors found at their body. Their color made the people happy. It can also take away the stress of one’s individual.
