Smile New Angle - Zebra Looking :D

I got a new Angle for the 55gal tank. She's about full grown, with zebra print on her. -edit- The other angle that I had before this new one is shown in the back right of the photo. -/edit-

Here's a photo:

Thanks! The picture doesn't do her any justice. I'm not sure of the sex of the black one, but the zebra print is a female. I'm going to get a few more in the hopes that they will breed. I need to do some research on that first.

Very nice! Angels are my favorite FW fish!

She's beautiful. How big is she?
I have my first Angel tank, so it would be nice to know how big they may get.

From top fin to bottom fin she is about 3.25" and will reach and will get a great deal bigger. Some have been known to get up to 10" (top to bottom, body, not fin) as long as the tank size doesn't stunt the growth.

I found out that she is a "Zebra Lace Angelfish," after doing some research. She is commonly known as the most beautiful of angelfish (source: wikipedia)

I have two at the moment, and plan on going to the full on 5! My LFS recommends no more than 5 in a 55gal due to temperamental problems. The two in there now are being very graceful and like to school with each other.

I wish I could have taken a better picture, the one I had taken just doesn't do her justice. She's very majestic.

I was told 6 in a 55g, which is what I have now. I plan on getting a 90g eventually. I was going to get it a few months back but some family issues needed the money more, so my Angels will have to wait a little longer.

Taking a good picture of fish is not easy, unless your a semipro or pro photographer. For those of us that hope to get lucky with a descent picture, the best way is to just take as many as you can and then delete the bad and save the good ones ones. Some times I'll take 150 pictures at a time and end up with 10 that are worth keeping.
Here are a couple of my Angels that turned out OK, after way to many tries.
Every time they change in color or size I take a ton of pics. Then I toss almost all of them, but I get a few worth keeping.
Taking a clear picture of a moving target takes practice, practice, practice, thank goodness for digital. If we were using regular film it would cost a fortune

My LFS had a smaller (2") Gold Veil Tail Angel-Mickie, we about picked him/her up until we saw the Zebra Lace, that might be the one that we get next time.

My buddy is giving me a free 20 gallon long, so I might have to pick other stock first

Well, I don't mean to double post, but the most amazing thing happened this morning. I turned the light on and began watching the fish, and I noticed my Zebra Lace was almost pure white. Immediately I freaked out thinking she was sick, and started watching her with more attention. Within moments her stripes started turning a light gray, then within the next few minutes were dark gray. Within no time at all, her stripes were pure black. This is the most amazing thing I've seen, I just had to share.
