The largest of all the angelfish species, the Altum Angelfish or Orinoco Angelfish is a graceful disk shaped cichlid. Being a bit timid, it can be frightened by shadows and fast movements. This is especially true when first acquired, but once acclimated it is a friendly personable fish. This is considered a community fish, but it is a cichlid and may not be as sociable with smaller fish. They will school peacefully when they are young, but tend to pair off and become more territorial when they are older.
