swallowtail angel


New member
Has anyone had any experience with swallowtail angelfish. I read some articles before getting a male and female pair. They have been hiding for the past two days, and I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this beautiful fish.

Any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Hmm..mine were out and about from the minute they went in the tank. Tell us more about the tank (physically) and about the tankmates...

Yeah, that seams odd to me to. My Swallowtail was out and about right from the get go. Same with my Watanabei's. They all seamed to eat right away, too. Even the Watanabei I got shipped from CA, ate the sameday.

Is there an intimidating fish in your setup?
