Angelfish are a very popular species found in rivers all throughout South America, including the Amazon. They are unique in appearance, very thin with long dorsal and ventral fins that can grow more than 6 inches long and 8 inches tall. Freshwater angels come in a variety of colors and patterns and get along with many other species, though its best to keep with fish too large for them to eat.
The red head koi angel has a reddish orange to red top on a marble body. These angelfish do not quite get the mythical bright red color seen in google images but never seen in the trade, but the color is a much brighter orange than typical koi angelfish.
