Angelfish "scalare" being the first species of Pterophyllum to be described. It was also the name that the fish was known by in the trade for many years

Sagittaria is a genus of common aquarium and house plants.

laterally compressed arrowheads
lurking in the Sagittaria
tall and thin predators
regally pursuing their game

Surprisely Angel fish are one of the fish that are known for picking on the others. Makes you wonder why they were not called, demon fish.
