What tank size would be needed for a fully grown Asfur Angel, going by their captive size? Do they get really large in captivity?
Also what size do Majestic, Gold Flake and Bluestriped Angels typically reach in captivity?
Hi John hope all’s well! I was wondering which of the large angels tend to stay small in captivity and any idea on their sizes? Especially curious to know for Blue Lines, Conspics, Majestics, Goldflakes and Asfurs. Thanks!
To my knowledge Bali Aquarich breeds both pedigree Goldflake Angels and a hybrid with the Flagfin. Is there any way to tell between them as juveniles and adults? Pics would be helpful. I only like the pure Goldflakes.
Hi all, if any of you have kept Asfur Angels long term, what size did they reach? I was going through some old threads on here and some people have mentioned how they grow really slowly and don’t attain anywhere near the 16” max size on FishBase. Has that been true in your experience?
So I was thinking:
1. Majestic (P. Navarchus)
2. Blue Line (C. Septentrionalis)
3. Goldflake (A. Xanthopunctatus)
4. Regal (P. Diacanthus)
1. Conspic (Poma Labs)
2. Chrysurus (P. Chrysurus)
3. Asfur (P. Asfur)
4. Rock Beauty (H. Tricolor)
Not sure if all these remain smaller. I’m...
Yeah I have also heard from people who’ve kept Majestic Angels in decent sized tanks for a decade or more and I think 7 or 8 inches was the largest I heard of.
Not sure about the others but hopefully there’s more that don’t really exceed those sizes in our tanks. (Excluding Genicanthus)
Hi all, what are some of the larger species of angels that tend to remain smaller and don’t get large, and grow slowly in captivity?
If you have any long term experience please let me know how big yours is and how quickly they grow.
Of course I want to avoid the ones that get huge like...
