Black Lace Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

When an angelfish carries both the dark gene and the wild-type gene of the silver angelfish, black lace angelfish are the result. This phenotype contains three vertical stripes similar to the silver angelfish, with an extremely darkened complexion.

Ghost Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

With characteristics closely resembling the albino angelfish, it does not have pink eyes but rather a prominent black stripe running across its eyes, in some cases. Although they lack the body stripes that are present in wild silver angelfish, ghost angelfish have a similar complexion.

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.

Blushing Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

The term "blushing" refers to their distinctive pink gills, which are more pronounced while they are young and gradually fade as they get older. With a white body and occasionally an orange tint, generally on its upper half, these characteristics are frequently comparable to those of Gold Angelfish and Albino Angelfish.

Black Hybrid Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

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.

Pink Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

This genetically modified pink angelfish was developed by Taiwanese biotechnologists in 2012 as part of a collaboration between Jy Lin, a private biotechnology business, National Taiwan Ocean University, and Taiwan's Academia Sinica.
