[edit] Museum

If you donate this fish to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The angelfish is called the queen of tropical fish, and quite rightly so, eh wot! Indeed, this one should bring a ray of sunshine to this dusty old museum! However serene these fish may look, they're actually rather feisty...Every rose has its thorn, isn't that what they say?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"The distinctive shape of the angelfish lets is appear larger than it actually is. ...It's quite beautiful, and though it is a tropical fish, it has many tricks for staying alive, eh wot? Those skills make it far more resilient than other, pampered tropical fish. Perhaps this fact is what earned the angelfish the title 'Tropical Fish Queen.'"

[edit] Trivia

  • Although in real life the Angelfish comes in a large variety of colors and sizes, Animal Crossing uses the most commonly found type.

[edit] Real Life

The Angelfish is a freshwater fish that can be found in rivers.

[edit] Appearance

The body of the Angelfish is in the shape of a triangle and is very skinny which allows it to hide among different underwater weeds and roots. The Angelfish also comes in a large variety of shapes and sizes due to selective breeding. These include anything from Koi Angelfish to Golden Angelfish.
