PTEROPHYLLUM ALTUM

Aquarium Fish Sale offers this “holy grail” fish on a buyer beware basis. These are truly wild fish and need expert care or they will die quickly.

Please research, ensure you have low PH soft water, live brine shrimp, and a lot of luck. Also, these fish prefer temps around 75 degrees. They will die if the temperature is too high or too low. Most likely they will die anyways.

We do not like to send these magnificent fish to their early demise and you don’t want to lose money – because we do not reimburse anyone on this fish. But, if you think you can handle them, they are amazing. The season when Altum Angels are available is late summer and early fall. We suggest you try no more than two on your first shipment and give them a week before you add to the collection.

Origin: Columbia

Lifespan: 12 years

Max size: 15 inches

Food: Frozen, flake, live feeders

South American Oddballs 

AquariumFishSale.com specializes in importing and housing exotic freshwater species. AFS groups these “oddballs” by region: African, South American, and Asian. AFS avoids collecting species known to be harvested improperly, particularly in the African region. Certain species, such as Arapaima, are endangered in the wild and AFS only imports these species through CITES certification to ensure future sustainability.  Oddball fish range in size due to the season and maturity or even the particular part of the lake or river from which they were caught.
