Leopard Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

As a leopard angelfish matures and reaches adulthood, their markings continuously grow closer together. This phenotype is a result of selectively breeding a combination of smokey and zebra genes.

Altum Angelfish (Pterophyllum Altum)

Altum angelfish are the largest species of freshwater angelfish. They have three distinct vertical black and brownish stripes that easily distinguishes them from Pterophyllum Scalare. Additionally, true altums that haven't been crossbred with Pterophyllum Scalare have an incision on the ridge of their nose, just below the eyes.

Silver Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

The original wild variety of silver angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare) has three vertical body stripes that extend between the dorsal and anal fins, one in the middle, and one across the eyes. Red eyes and some coloring on their upper side are features that the majority of wild types exhibit.

Albino Red-Eye Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

The albino angelfish has a white body with translucent fins, red eyes, and occasionally a very slight orange color on its top body. This colorless phenotype is the outcome of two recessive albino genes being present.

Koi Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

Koi angelfish and gold marble angelfish are two phenotypes that have comparable appearances. The distinctive distinction between the two is that only the top of the body, the area around the dorsal fin, and the top of the head are frequently orange on the gold marble angelfish, but the koi angelfish will display more orange across their entire body.

Blue Leopard Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

As a blue leopard angelfish matures and reaches adulthood, their markings continuously grow closer together. Additionally, they are one of Pterophyllum Scalare's rarest phenotypes and might be hard to locate in stores; if you do, don't hesitate!
