Cream Angelfish are a unique angel that will bring beauty to your aquarium! This fish can be shy at first and may spend its time hiding, so don't panic and give it time to acclimate. They generally feed on a wide variety of algae, sponges, soft corals and other organisms, which is why they are not recommended for reef aquariums. Like any other angel, they can be aggressive with other angels and similarly shaped/colored fish. The Cream Angel can grow to be about 8" in size, so ample swimming space is necessary. It's easy to see how this angel got its name; they have a cream-colored body with a black stripe through the eye and black on its fins and back half. Then they also have a vibrant yellow tail and white outlining.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
