Smile Favorite Angelfish Varieties

Which angelfish color variety do you think looks the best and is your favorite?

I can't decide which variety I should get.

I'm a sucker for koi angelfish but I've seen a lot of very nice Philippine blues recently.

I have a wide fin zebra Philippine blue (pearlscale). I can tell it is going to look stunning when it's fully grown (don't know the sex yet). I've tried to take a picture of it a number of times, but it just doesn't do it justice...it moves around a lot, and my camera isn't really the best either.

I have others that are stunning as well...a platinum, a marble, and a ghost, all Philippine blues as well, and a non-blue zebra pearlscale. But I think the first one I mentioned is my favorite.

I've always kinda liked the really dark black ones. The greenish ones are nice, too.

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

Pinoys are also really beautiful IMO.

Not my image, BTW. I found it off of Google.

I've got a blue zebra/Rio Negro wild mix. Fantastic fish. The only blue on her is the entire dorsal.

I like plain shiny silvers!

Hi

Just got in today and I thank everyone who have made this website possible.

I don't have a pic of my silver angelfish but I truly marvel at its regality. I remember it was a bit feisty though, seemed to have taken some bite at all the other fishes in my tank.

again. my thank you's.
