Disclaimer: These angels don't have the long, sharp dorsal and anal fins, but have a lot of color. Due to the shorter fins, we've discounted them a bit.

Natural Range: Rio Manacapuru

Source: Aquarium Bred and Raised

Estimated Size at Shipping: 1.5-2" give or take a bit.

Max size: 4"

Sold unsexed

Overview: Amongst the many variants of P. scalare, the Manacapuru Redbacks are one of the most desired. When fully mature, they get a brilliant red color on the top side of their bodies.

Setup Considerations: While most fish prefer their aquarium to have a larger footprint, Angelfish appreciate the depth. They get much taller than wide.

Special Care Requirements: While they can hold their own with most fish, keeping them with fish that like to nip fins isn't recommended.

Diet: Omnivore. Most angelfish aren't picky and will readily eat most prepared foods. It is good to mix in some veggie flakes in from time to time.
