    I think that is probably because people find them more attractive. I actually prefer the regular fin, but think veils can be quite stunning.
    Same as them only carrying male fish because they are more colorful.

    The thing about the veils is they very easily can damage them and then they get all bent etc. Angels are just nicwe to look at in general!! LOL

    I noticed that when my veil gets tears in her fins. I have a bottle that is all natural thats made from tea leaves, I use that to help my angel.

    Nice looking and around here I have seen them referred to as 'smokies'. As for torn fins I have used mel-a-fix in the past. Good luck.

    actually for fin tears all that is needed is clean water and a healthy diet.

    I feed my fish a mix of flakes and brine shrimp. I raised half of the fish I have in my tank..
