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 80 degrees. They will die if the temperature is too high or too low. Most likely they will die anyways. Please note we only guarantee live arrival, you must keep this fish alive from the first minute they arrive.
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.
