The Museum

The Angelfish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"These tropical fish move very gracefully because of long fins on their backs and underbellies. Males and females are almost impossible to tell apart, making identification tricky. They lay eggs among water plants. Both genders look after the babies while they cling to weeds. The young look like any other fish, but they gain their angelfish looks once they leave the weeds."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught an angelfish! Now where's its harp?"
