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.

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.

Blue Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

The rarest phenotype is found in blue angelfish, a recessive mutation that is quite recent and whose origins are unknown. It is made up of two recessive genes and enhances iridescence in all strains while significantly reducing the storage of carotenoid pigments.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Black Ghost Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

Black ghost angelfish are occasionally mistaken for their closest relative, the black hybrid. The difference between the two is that Black Hybrid Angelfish will have a mix of gold and faded black scales, whereas the black ghost is jet black.

Pearlscale Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

Pearlscale angelfish is an appropriate name since their pure white body shimmers in light due to their wrinkly scales which reflect light. Albino angelfish do not have a scale mutation, in contrast to its close relative the pearlscale.

Zebra Lace Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

Due to their similar features, silver angelfish and zebra lace angelfish are sometimes mistaken for one another. The zebra angelfish has one or two additional black vertical stripes, whereas a silver angelfish has four vertical stripes.

Leopold’s Angelfish (Pterophyllum Leopoldi)

The leopold's angelfish, which belongs to the Pterophyllum Leopoldi genus and are the smallest freshwater angelfish, can easily be distinguished from other Pterophyllum species by two distinctive characteristics: a large black spot between the dorsal spine and dorsal fins, and an unnotched predorsal contour.

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.
