In the year 2015 along with an import of stingrays from Belem, Para, Brazil an angelfish was imported that was unknown to us until then.
Already in 2016, in the F1 generation, a few blue mutants with a red iris could be selected.
These blue angels from wild parents formed the basis of the selective breeding we performed; we called the fish „Belem Sky Blue“.
In the second generation were already several very nice fish in respect of coloration, size and finneage development.
The fish exhibit a very strong brood care, both parents take care for eggs and offspring, as is typical for wild strains of angelfish.
Only now the whole potential of blue colours and black pattern becomes visible.
So far the report of our breeder Kurt Jülich. We can offer now this fish for the very first time in good numbers.
For our customers: the fish have code 699893 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
