New Angelfish pics! - What's his name?

The LFS had these labeled as marble angelfish, but now that I'm looking online, it looks more like a 'smoky' angel to me - can anyone confirm for me?



And, as usual, the pic is on it's way into my gallery, and there's a larger version here.

yeah ... that looks more of a cross breed but smokey would be part of the cross.

nice looking fish

Thanks for the speedy reply, Lunchbox!

I'm looking forward to seeing him grow - his tail has quite a nice pattern/coloration on it.

Here are some new pics of the new angel, which I've decided is of the smoky(more apparent in the first pic)/mutt color variation.

Any guesses on the 'mutt' part? Black - oversized dorsal? Marble? :shrug:



Decent pic of his colors.



You lookin' at me?



Dig the pec fins in this pic.


Bigger versions available here.

Well, Mr. 'new angelfish' sure seems @ home now - he's even coming to the glass when it's feeding time! They sure are greedy little guys!

I've been considering a name, and my wife doesn't have any suggestions yet, so before she says she thinks it should be 'Fredrick' or 'Harrison' or somesuch, does anyone have any fish appropriate ideas? I thought 'Smokey' was a little obvious. . . : grin :

I don't really plan on naming any of my fish, but that angel is going to be a solo so I thought he deserved it. . . and still don't really have any ideas. Perhaps we will end up with 'Frederick' or 'Harrison' or somesuch.

Well, I did name my angels (mostly due to personalities than anything else). If you notice, they are named after the musketeer's (the original one's from Dumas' book, not the TV show...LOL).

I also named my sailfin...a singular sensation so it was easy. He's a cliffhanger, therefore..."Cliff Gibbiceps".

I thought Smokey was fine though...fits his personality.
