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.

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

Default 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.
