Black Lace or Zebra Lace: This variety has very attractive lacing in the fins.
Halfblack Silver: This variety has a black rear portion.
Ghost: This is a Silver variety with just a stripe through the eye and tail.
Lace: This variety is without complete stripes. Ghosts generally have more iridescence than non-ghosts.
Smokey: This variety has a dark brown/gray back half, and dark dorsal and anal fins.
Chocolate: This is a Smokey variety with more of the dark pattern and sometimes only the head is silver.
Halfblack Silver: This variety has a black rear portion.

Hey Lizzy

The fish breeders of the Czech Republic have added deep gold and red (more of a very dark orange) to the list of Angelfish colour varieties. I have photographs of both varieities - in preparation for illustrating an article.

Gosh, they sound almost...angelic. What would I have to do if I wanted to have them, but without any intention to breed with them, just to enjoy them?
