Angelfish for Your Aquarium

One of the most attractive fish species that you can add to your aquarium collection is the unique angelfish. The P. Scalare type of angelfish probably is the most common and popular of the species. They have become so popular that currently there are quite a number of wild as well as cross-bred strains for aquarium keepers to choose from and add to their own collection. Here are just some of the most popular angelfish varieties available.

Silver Angelfish

Silver Angelfish- also referred to as a wild type of angelfish, the silver angelfish doesn't contain any dominant color genes. It is because of this absence of color genes that make it appear with a silver body with usually four distinct vertical black stripes. The stripes found on the silver angelfish may fade and darken, depending on the mood of the fish. If it is under stress, these stripes may fade. The stripes become darkest when it is breeding time.

Gold Angelfish

Gold Angelfish - this is probably one of the hardiest and most attractive angelfish strains. Some of these angelfish are capable of developing an intense orange crown, adding to its attractiveness. The gold color of this angelfish strain is a recessive trait.

Black Lace Angelfish

Black Lace Angelfish – this is usually a strain of a silver angelfish with one copy of the Dark gene. The result is an angelfish with very attractive black lacing in its fins. The black lace is considered by many to be one of the most attractive of angelfish varieties.

Sunset Blushing

Sunset Blushing – this strain usually has the upper half of the angelfish exhibiting an orange tint, especially on the good ones. Its body is mostly white in color with clear fins. Some strains can exhibit a pinkish or even a tangerine hue on their bodies. The term blushing comes from the clear gill plates where the pinkish gill can be seen underneath.


Pearlscale – this angelfish variety is known for its scale mutation. The scales of this angelfish have a wrinkled and wavy look that reflect light to create a sparkling and pearly effect. This effect can be inhibited by stressful conditions.


Albino – this angelfish variety usually has no dark pigments. Some of the angelfish varieties belonging to this group, like the Albino Marble, may have a hint of black still noticeable on the body of the fish. The eye pupils are pink as are usually exhibited in all types of albino animals. at here
