Freshwater angelfish are a popular type of aquarium fish. Their anal and dorsal fins have an exaggerated shape that remind people of the wings of angels. Angelfish come in several bright colors and patterns, and they are easy to care for and not particular about their diet.
Angelfish seem to have more personality than other types of aquarium fish and show interest in their surroundings. However, they can be aggressive, especially when feeding and during the breeding season. Aquarium owners shouldn't keep them with smaller and less aggressive fish.
Angelfish also have long life spans, sometimes living up to 10 years.
