Pterophyllum altum deutsche Nachzucht

November 2003: Lately we received German bred Pterophllyum altum. It is worth mentioning that this was a natural brood, eg both parent took care for eggs and the young. Even spawning of the Altum Angel is a remarkeble event. This species tends to get panic attacks when the fish is fully grown. Thus they tend to eat eggs and young often even after relatively slight concerns. Behaviour in fish species is mostly passed on genetically. Now there is a good chance that these young Altum Angels are as good breeders as their parents.(Photo & Text K. Diehl)
