2. How do you cross breed two different types of angelfish, such as Albino and Black, and know the outcome of the offspring? The Albino has the genes aA and the Black has the genes BD. I know you can use the gene squares or whatever theye're called, but if you end up with the genes of AD, the A being from the Albino and the D being from the Black, then what do you get? Is it one of the two or is it like, mixed?

Angel fish types - Guide to help identify Another common name for this phenotype is “black velvet” because the coloration is a smooth, velvety black. This fish is characterized by lack of any lace pattern in the fins or tail. Underlying stripes that can be seen with a bright light. Subtle differences can be seen between each of these genotypes. The double dark black blushing will be darker black than the hybrid black blushing angelfish. When the hybrid black blushing has either a gold… Different Types of Freshwater Angelfish

We have observed many differences from the classification literature on fish that are labeled as a particular species. For instance, we've had fish labeled as Pterophyllum scalare with both notched predorsal contours and others with straight predorsal contours. The classification literature says that scalare have strongly notched predorsal contours, so what are these fish with the straight contours? They are definitely not Pterophyllum altum, and do not fit the characteristics of Pterophyllum leopoldi either. Also, where's the notched contours on our domestic scalare (as everyone calls them)? Some have it, most don't. Unlike Pterophyllum scalare and Pterophyllum altum, Pterophyllum leopoldi has a straight predorsal contour. There are at least two distinctively different wild angelfish with this straight contour. One appears to be an unidentified species, quite different from Pterophyllum leopoldi descriptions. We've seen both imported under the name Pterophyllum leopoldi, with the true Pterophyllum leopoldi most commonly imported under the incorrect name, Pterophyllum dumerilii. As a side note, Pterophyllum dumerilii does not exist. It is not a valid species name. Incorrect names from importers are common, therefore passing on this information when naming wild angelfish types, is likely to be incorrect.There is really only one species of angelfish that is available for freshwater aquariums. However, there are many variations in body shape and colors that allow angelfish to appear like many different types of fish.There are many different species of that you have the option of choosing for your tank. But while there are many species, it is important to keep in mind that some of these species do not always get along with others. That being said, you should research the different types of fish that there are and learn which ones are able to live and survive with one another. The more you know about the different types of Angel fish, the better off your tank will be. The Angelfish family is a large group of colorful and elegant fish that vary in color and size. There are many unique qualities of Angel fish that make them such a likeable type of fish. They are fairly active and are most known for their tempers. It can be fun to watch them in the tank, as they have very unique personalities.One of the key distinguishing factors to look for when separating out species of Angelfish is the pre-dorsal notch which is deeper on P. leopoldi. This pigmentation may include part of the dorsal rays or it may appear only on the body. Attitude is also an important characteristic of P. leopoldi, which happens to both the smallest and the feistiest of the three species. One of the easier or quickest ways to determine species (Though not always accurate) is to look at the facial build of the fish. The three wild types of fish have very different facial characteristics. For those hobbyists who are interested in breeding, this is an important consideration. A deeper explanation follows this paragraph.
