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.

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.

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.

Clown Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

Both the zebra and the stripeless genes are present in equal amounts in clown angelfish. This phenotype has white and silver undertones with inconsistent patches of black stripes and dots throughout their entire body.

Smokey Angelfish (Pterophyllum Scalare)

The smokey angelfish only has one smokey gene, as opposed to the chocolate angelfish's two. Their fins and the rear of this phenotype display black and grey patterns, while the rest of their body has softer colorations.

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.

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.
