Care Instructions

Tank Setup:

  • Tank Size: Golden Angel Fish require a minimum tank size of 20 gallons. For groups, a larger tank is recommended to provide ample swimming space and reduce territorial aggression.
  • Water Quality: Maintain clean water conditions with regular water changes (20-25% weekly). Use a high-quality filter to ensure adequate water movement and filtration.
  • Substrate and Decor: Use a soft, sandy substrate with plenty of hiding spots such as plants, rocks, and driftwood. They appreciate a well-planted tank with tall plants that mimic their natural habitat.
  • Lighting: Moderate lighting is ideal. Ensure the tank has areas of shade created by plants or decorations to provide a sense of security.


  • Golden Angel Fish are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet that includes high-quality flake or pellet food supplemented with live or frozen foods like brine shrimp, bloodworms, and daphnia.
  • Feed small amounts 2-3 times daily, ensuring they consume all food within a few minutes to avoid overfeeding and water quality issues.

Behavior and Compatibility:

  • Golden Angel Fish are generally peaceful but can exhibit territorial behavior, especially during breeding. They are best kept with other peaceful fish of similar size.
  • Avoid keeping them with fin-nipping species or very small fish that might be seen as prey.


  • Breeding Golden Angel Fish can be challenging but rewarding. They form monogamous pairs and will lay eggs on flat surfaces.
  • Provide breeding pairs with a separate breeding tank with slightly warmer water and flat surfaces like broad leaves or slate for egg-laying.
  • Parents will care for the eggs and fry, but be prepared to separate the fry if the parents become overly aggressive.
