Description

Bulgarian Green Lilac Point is sometimes referred to as New Platinum; however, it caused too much confusion with the stark white Platinum phenotype (pb/pb g/g).  Lilac Point Angels have a pale green overtone on a white body.  Fins typically are very pale gray to off-white.

These angels will develop their colors through adulthood.  Photos are examples of different fish in different lighting conditions to show off how much variation in color there can be.

Genetically, Bulgarian Green Lilac Point Angels carry two copies of the Bulgarian Green genes and two copies of the Philippine Blue genes.  Genetic notation:  pb/pb bg/bg.  Offspring will be 100% Lilac Points.

Breeder Group of 5 Bulgarian Lilac Points is perfect for those who don’t want to wait to grow out your own breeders.  Sold individually would cost around $400!  This offer will get you going much faster.  Many have already paired off naturally.  You will receive 5 Young Adult or Adult fish of the same quality that we would add to our breeding program.   We inspect shape and do our best to make sure you get both males and females.  If a pair has naturally formed that will be the first 2 fish we will select for your group.

 

 

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.
