$29.00$99.00

High Coverage Orange Koi will develop an overall orange body with little to no white as adults.  Smaller sizes will have a lighter body, but when fed appropriate foods and properly housed they have the potential to become striking adults.

Description

High Coverage Orange Koi Angels are selected for their intense color and high coverage from the best breeders.  You will not be disappointed!  Colors will continue to develop through all stages of growth.  Adults will achieve the most intense, dark orange coloring!!

In order to maintain the High Coverage we recommend foods high in krill or shrimp ingredients as these foods contain natural forms of astaxanthin.  They do not require a diet high in carotene; however, will not develop their intense coloring.  Also, these fish require a healthy environment and not overcrowded to reach their full potential.

We also recommend having a dark substrate and a dark background as this helps to highlight the orange tones.

Recommended food to help maintain the intense orange coloring:

Astaxanthin
Grand Champion RED
Artemia Flake  – a type of shrimp that provided 400ppm Astaxanthin in these thick, meaty flakes

Angelfish Care Guide and Other Information

Scientific NamePterophyllum scalare
TemperamentSemi-Aggressive. Angelfish can make good community fish; however, due to their semi-aggressive nature, they need to be closely monitored...and deal with if they become too aggressive. For this reason we do not recommend angelfish for beginners.
Lifespan10-15 years with proper care.
Adult SizeThe central body will reach a large dollar coin, approx 3-4 inches in diameter, excluding the fins. Depending on the fin type on how big their overall size can become. Also, angelfish will continue to slowly grow and bulk up as they age.
General Hardness8 dGH or 100 TDS. Angelfish do best in soft water, but can easily adapt to hard water. If mineralization is too high eggs may not hatch. When this happens may need to consider alternate methods if wanting to breed.
Tank Size20 Gallon High for the first angelfish; and an additional 10 gallons for each additional angel.
Group SizeAngelfish can be kept in singles or in groups. While juveniles, they do best in groups. But once they mature, they may begin to fight for territory and for their mate. To minimize squabbles, do not house 3 together as the dominant two will pick on and potentially kill the submissive one.
HabitatFreshwater
Dietary NeedsOmnivore. Angelfish extra protein and plant sources for optimum health. Options include:
  • Gourmet Cichlid Flake or Tropical Color Flake
  • Artemia Flake - especially when raising red or deep orange varieties
  • Newly hatched Baby Brine Shrimp Eggs (BBS)
  • Golden Pearls - great alternative to hatching BBS. Our last spawn was raised on these.
  • Sticks - any flavor. My angels enjoy Beefheart Sticks, Bloodworm Sticks, Silkworm Sticks, Spirulina Sticks, Very Veggie Sticks, and much more.
  • Organic Granules
  • Repashy
  • Even fresh veggies and occasional fruits. But be aware, fresh foods can quickly pollute the tank. I like to use fresh foods 1-2 days before doing water changes or maintenance to clean up
BreedingAngels can learn to parent raise their offspring if housed in their own tank 29 gallons or larger; or can pull the eggs and hatch artificially.
