Also known as the Albino Dantum Angelfish, the Albino Angelfish is a distinctive, impressive, and selectively bred strain of Angelfish. Quite possibly the most recognized freshwater fish, it is characterized by its red eyes, a yellowish-orange ring around its eyes, and a lack of color. It possesses an understated beauty that is in contrast to its brightly colored relatives.
The Albino Angelfish has a tall body, long fins, and beautiful yellow bars. Though it has a pure white base color, it can sometimes have light gold striping. However, it tends to have shorter lifespans and is more susceptible to specific health issues than other Angelfish types. Despite this, the strain is popular among hobbyists, with many admiring it for its behavior and graceful swimming.
The Albino Angelfish is semi-aggressive, especially towards its kind when trying to pair off and spawn. On top of that, it is not uncommon for it to eat smaller fish. As such, you should avoid adding any fish small enough to be eaten. Also, you should avoid adding aggressive fish or those known to be fin-nippers because of the long, trailing fins the Albino Angelfish has.
The best tankmates to consider are larger Rasboras and Tetra, peaceful Barbs, and other medium-sized Catfish. The Corydoras Catfish, Boesemani Rainbowfish, and Dwarf Gourami are examples of some of the most compatible tankmates for your Albino Angelfish.
Though in the wild, this fish often forages along the bottom looking for small crustaceans and worms, in captivity, it is generally a mid-water or surface feeder. Since it is omnivorous, it will thrive on shrimp pellets, color flakes, and tropical granules. It also enjoys frozen and live invertebrates, such as brine shrimp, mosquito larvae, tubifex worms, and bloodworms.
Consider rotating their diet daily and only feeding them what they can eat in minutes, doing so once or twice each day.
How long do Albino Angelfish live?
The Albino Angelfish can live for up to 10 years if you provide them with the proper aquarium conditions.
How do you breed an Albino Angelfish?
When breeding the Albino Angelfish, house a number of them in one aquarium until they pair off. Once a pair emerges, provide them with a flat surface, such as a large plant leaf or slate, to lay their eggs.
Position the flat surface at a 30-degree angle in an area of moderate water flow. Once the female lays its eggs and the male fertilizes them, the eggs will hatch after three days. Feed the fry that emerges newly hatched brine shrimp until they are big enough to eat crushed flake food.

"The fish I received do not look like the fish in thepicture. Why is this?"
- We typically take photographs of one or two fish when we initially get them in. Since we have a large quantity of most of the various species of fish, it would be understandably impossible to provide a picture ofevery individual fish with a specific species. For some of our more rare orlarger fish, the picture listed may be the actual fish that you are receiving.If this is the case, it will be designated by ?WYSIWYG?, meaning ?what you see,is what you get?.
"What happens if my fish arrive dead?"
- While this is a rare occurrence, it can and willhappen from time to time. Fish are live animals and we cannot ensure that everyone will arrive alive or remain alive.We do ask that if your fisharrives dead (DOA), submit a picture of the deceased fish that is in the bag.We will work quickly with you to resolve the problem. We will offer replacement fish for any losses, but do not offer refunds at this time. We will reship any replacement fish at the buyer's expense.If you put the fish in your tank and it dies or is not acting properly, please contact us, with pictures, within 24 hours. We will again, do everything in our power to resolvethe issue and ensure that you have a great experience with these fish.
"What if I'm not home when the fish arrive?"
- We will always provide you with a tracking number. While the fish are packaged to survive about 72+ hours within the shipping containers, we do ask that you make arrangements to arrive home to inspect your fish as soon as possible after they are delivered to your home. Itis always suggested to provide an area for the delivery person to place the boxthat is out of direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
"What do I do with my fish once I've unpacked them?"
- Like you would with any new fish, let the entire bag float in your tank for 15-30 minutes. This allows the temperature withinthe bag to adjust to the same as your tank and will reduce temperature shock onthe fish. After this time, you can add all of the fish and water that is in thebag into your tank. The products used within the water for shipping will notharm any existing fish within your tank and actually makes the transition foryour new fish a bit easier. After this, expect your new fish to take a few daysto become fully adjusted, this includes hiding, floating at the top, sinking tothe bottom, and not eating. After a few days, your new fish should be acting aswimming like they normally would. At this point, enjoy your aquarium!
"I want to return my new fish because x,y,z?"
- Unfortunately, we are unable to accept returns.We do recommend contacting us via email with yourorder number and as much information as possible. We will try to assist you inresolving whatever the issue may be.
