Can anyone list and give pics of all the different types(color varieties) of angelfish? I would like to try and id my new one. I know that Angel is a mix between a koi and a marble angel.

Hi Tom
I think that would be a great idea. If it were to be a list with photos of each of the types of angelfish that was pasted to the top of the angelfish species specific catagory it would make ID'ing an angelfish that much easier for all. ;D

I want it with a pic and then the variety right beside it. The pics are in a list format.

I know a great little (and very cheap) book that describes in detail all about Angelfish, including all varieties of Angels:

This is a good website too:

Thanks, I have seen the book in stores and never thought to look in it. The website doesn't have the kinds that I am looking for though. Thanks anyways, I am going to the store tomorrow and I will see if they have it there.

Well I dont think that mine looks like either of those photos. The fins are different, and I really dont think that mine is a half black. I think it looks just like the Altum that was in your earlier post. ;D Are those your fish in this last post?

No unfortunately not!
I have a black and 2 golden marbles?.

Why i said it looks more like a silver is because yours has the same dark stripe at the back and the faint strip by the eye like the silver. While, the altum has full stripes vertically across its body.

ummmmm.. I see what you mean. I see its veritcal stripes come out clearer from time to time, and at stress times, it pales out. Guess will just have to wait and see as it matures what it is. Olie, the striped one is about.. 6 inches tall from tip of its top fin to tip of its bottom fin. Its body size is three inches tall. Wonder if its near its maturity already? The marble ( Stan) is about 5 inches from tip to tip and almost 3 inches in body size.

Yes i was just thinking that maybe only when they become mature then only the stripes get bolder...

HI Isabella
I agree with you... those true all black angels are gorgeous! I saw a few at my LFS once and really thought they were very striking. But didnt want to get another with the two angels that I have.... Ohhh wellll.... But maybe someday if I were to add another angel fish, it would be the black.... or the koi lol.

Great thanks, I was able to find out that I have a golden marble angel(Angel), and I had a wild angel(Altum). I had no idea Altum was a wild type, if you don't believe me, take a look at this;

and Altum is down below. I am still trying to ID Stanley.
