Black hybrid angelfish and black ghost angelfish are two phenotypes that have comparable appearances. The key distinction between the two is that while the black ghost angelfish will be completely black in color, the black hybrid angelfish will have a mixture of copper undertones and black coloration.

Gold Marble Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

A gold or yellow upper body typically on their head contrasts with the main body's mixture of black and white coloring on gold marble angelfish. In certain cases, the entire body exhibits this gold/orange patterning. They are among the most popular angelfish on the market and come in a wide variety.
