$49.99

A distinctive regional variant of freshwater Angelfish, the Rio Nanay Angel is also called by the trade name “Peru Altum” although it is not the true Altum Angel from the Orinoco basin of Colombia and Venezuela. One of the characteristics that distinguishes this naturally occurring form of angel is its reddish or pink spots which become more prominent with age. A beautiful and unique fish, they prefer warm, soft, acidic water and are relatively undemanding in the aquarium.
