The Black Marble Angelfish, scientifically known as Pterophyllum scalare, is a stunning and sought-after freshwater fish species that adds elegance and beauty to any aquarium. With its striking black and white marbled pattern, the Black Marble Angelfish is a captivating centerpiece that will enhance the visual appeal of your tank.


The Black Marble Angelfish displays a unique marbling pattern, featuring a combination of black, white, and sometimes gray or silver markings on its body and fins. Each individual fish showcases a distinct and intricate pattern, making them visually captivating and adding a touch of sophistication to your aquarium. They can grow up to 6 inches in height, making them a suitable choice for medium-sized tanks.


Known for their graceful swimming movements and peaceful nature, Black Marble Angelfish are compatible with a variety of peaceful community fish species. They prefer an aquarium with ample swimming space and vertical decorations such as tall plants or driftwood, which mimic their natural habitat. Providing them with hiding spots and plenty of open swimming space will promote their overall well-being.


Feeding the Black Marble Angelfish is relatively easy as they are omnivorous. They will readily accept a variety of high-quality flake or pellet foods formulated for angelfish, as well as frozen or live foods such as brine shrimp or bloodworms.
