Did you know that angelfish can live up to 15 years? Well, it’s true! There are about 86 species of angelfish. Angelfish eat many different things and live in interesting places.
Angelfish eat many different small fish and algae. They also eat worms, sponges and shrimp. Sometimes they nibble on soft coral and jellyfish. Their predators are sharks, birds, and crocodiles. Angelfish protect hemselves by biting.
They are found in the tropical Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. They live in shallow, coral reefs. They like to hide in tall plants. They usually live in small groups called schools.
Angelfish are beautiful fish. They have thin, round bodies. Their spine is located in their lower cheek. Their bodies can get up to 2 feet long. They are also one of the most colorful fish in the ocean.
Mothers lay between 100 and 1,000 eggs. Their babies are called fries. They lay eggs on leaves. Eggs are sticky and clear. The eggs hatch 24-36 hours after being laid.
Angelfish behave in many ways. They are nice most of the time, but can become very territorial. They can become aggressive to other fish. Not all angelfish should be considered bullies.
In conclusion, angelfish lay a lot of eggs and are slow moving, graceful swimmers. In my opinion, angelfish are some of the most beautiful fish in the sea.
