The Marble Angelfish is a farm raised color morph of the original Silver Angel. The body is a mottled mix of black, white, and silver. An omnivore, Angelfish will eat most prepared diets and love a treat of live worms. They will require good water quality, so frequent partial water changes are required. Tankmates can include most of the "community fish", as long as they are too large to be eaten by the Angelfish and are not fin nippers. It is probably safe to say that almost everyone who has a freshwater aquarium has had Angelfish at one time or another.
