Our first angelfish! Does anyone know what kind it is?

hazyvonne

We got our first angelfish yesterday. At the LFS, the tank they were in had mainly white and orange koi angelfish with a few of these. Husband chose this one because he says at certain angles, it looks like it has a bit of a "purple tint" - I don't see it, but I think it's a pretty fish either way :) I looked online at various angelfish but nothing really looked like this one. Also, he/she is very young/small but is it possible to tell whether they are male or female? He/She is currently chilling in our quarantine tank happily gobbling up the fresh baby brine shrimp I hatched for them - can't wait to watch this little one grow :)
Thank you!

The pattern reminds me of what you would see on marble stone, but i don't do angel fish, so i don't know if that would be considered a marble fish or not. Same with gender, no clue!

I would call that a Smokey Angel. It's not a Marble. Too young to sex, of course.
