Angelfish and plants
 
what plants would be best for an angel?

Not knowing what type of substrate or lighting you have makes it tough for those who would make suggestions. Were it me I would look at watersprite. :wink:

mine like swimming through the tall vallis. :)

They're known to eat plants, so whatever they won't eat is a good idea. Not that they are voracious plant eaters, but they're cichlids, and therefore trouble makers :P

+1 for the vallisneria. Any tall, grassy plant is great for them.

Also, a nice wide leaf sword would be good, as that is what they lay their eggs on. Amazon sword's the popular choice, but there's a million other options as well.

I have a pair of Platinum Angelfish and they haven't muched on any of my plants since I got them about 2 years ago. I have never had any angelfish bother or eat any of my plants.
