    I love the variety! I think most people don't realize how many kinds of angels there are.. I didn't until we got Fred and started looking at Angels more. Now to find "Wilma". ;)

    How do you tell the difference between a Koi and a Golden Marble?
     
  9. Sabi Well Known Member Member

    To be honest i'm not really sure. But i think the koi has more orange than the gold marble. I intend to research the types thoroughly sometime during the year.

    A koi is a gold marble blusher, a gold marble looks the same, no translucent gill plate that makes a blusher what it is.

    I have a picture of my blushing blue if you'd like to use her on here. :)

    I also have what I believe to be a gold cobra. I've got plenty of pictures of both. Just let me know if you'd like to use the pictures on here. ;)

    DaroRs it seems the angels with stripes are "Tuxedo" with long fins. Their specialty is to change their color (fade/darken), as in the stripes go off and come on every second. I have 2 of those, but not with long fins. They have short fins. My both Tuxedo seems to be really energetic.

    However, I am posting 1 of my adult pair over here.


    She is a female, her tube is hanging down with a big hole. something long came out her tube and fell on the bottom of the tank, while i was taking this picture.

    This one's a male, cuz he chases everyone away, except the female in the above pic and another female, who's a baby. He is just like an "Albino angel fish". The only difference is that he has a red eye, where as "Albino's have black eye. Name of this breed is "Red Eye Platinum", which is very rare and expensive.

    This thread could be a great resource; however, I am concerned with the mislabeling. For example, the Gold Marble and Koi are both mislabeled. Gold Marbles will have gold in its dorsal fin; while Koi do not and are blushing. And, the photo labeled as Albino is a Platinum as it does not have the red eye that is found in a true albino specimen.

    Please pay attention to dates. This thread is from last fall!

    Newer angel types are constantly being developed. Keep researching them and watching for new developments. And, if there is a particular type you are interested in contact breeders.

    My most recent acquisitions include Blue Smokeys and Pinoy Smokeys. They are very nice!!
