Freshwater Angelfish Food, Diet and Proper Feeding
Maintaining a proper diet is essential to keeping and breeding
healthy Angelfish. Young Angelfish need good nutrition to grow
to full size and be strong. It is therefore, very important
to make sure the young Angelfish are getting good mix of food
and are getting enough to eat.
Wild Angelfish are omnivorous and predatory. However in captivity
they will accept most commercial prepared foods. Some of their
favorite foods are brine shrimp, tubifex worms, white worms
and blood worms. Angelfish can be healthy without being fed
any live foods.
Angelfish will readily accept commercial prepared flakes and
pellets. While can live off of just flake foods, they should
be given some other foods to add variety to their diet. Freeze
dried and frozen foods mixed in with commercial flakes and pellets
will provide an ideal diet for Angelfish. Adding a few feedings
of live foods to the mix will help to provide a complete balanced
diet and healthy Angelfish.
