Hi! I was just wondering what types of angel fish I have. Can you guys please help me tell what type they are and if they’re going to have long flowing fins or regular? The big one behind the plants has long fins but I don’t know if the other ones will when they grow. Thanks.

The second two look like standard fins. They look a lot like the assorted angels from the petstore/LFS. I don't think they were bred true to a strain or if they were these probably were not the best representations of the strain. First one looks like it has marbling, second has some sort of patchy pattern like a koi, third has a more "wild" look. They're gorgeous fish regardless I'm just not sure they fall into an official type.

The last appears to have some Zebra gene from the stripes on the body and tail, but it lacks the markings of a zebra in the dorsal and analfins. Could be related to another mutation.

You have a marble, a koi and a zebra :)

That fish is very young. Zebra angelfish often don't develop the pattern in their dorsal until they are more mature.

Never noticed that before. Thanks, Biz!
