Tank Recommendations for your Angelfish 

The Platinum angel is a colour variation of the common scalare angelfish species meaning it has the same aquarium needs as any other angelfish variety. Reaching around 15 cm long and a decent 20 cm tall. Because of this, they would need to be kept in a tank that is at least 100 liters. Platinum angelfish are not exactly a solitary species and should be kept in mated pairs or shoals. However they will need space as they can be territorial at times, so having a good footprint in the aquarium is always best. A sand or gravel substrate is perfectly fine but a well-planted aquarium with lots of branching driftwood and rock will be greatly appreciated by these angelfish. This species is most active when lights are turned on during the day

Suitable Tank Buddies

The Platinum Angelfish is fairly peaceful with aggression only ever coming out during breeding males however they may eat very small fish fry and shrimp. With adequate space, these fish will get along with a wide range of community fish. it has however been noted that angelfish can possibly be aggressive against fish species that look similar.
