The leopoldi angelfish is a truly wild angel with vibrant black striping and a tough wild nature that one does not see in captive bred angelfish. The leopoldi angelfish will grow larger than common bred silver angelfish and often develop red or light green spots on the body. Aquariumfishsale.com imports leopoldi angelfish from the Peruvian Amazon basin. Unlike the Altum angelfish, wild leopoldi are well suited to the aquarium environment and will eat flake foods.
