Look like my marble vieltails.

Like I told my last wife, I says, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes."

It's definitely a marble angel, but I don't think it's a veil tail (at least based on what I consider veil tail). I have 4 angels myself. What I call veil tail has a much longer tail fin (hence the name). I would define yours simply as a marble angel.

Here's a picture of one of my angels that I consider to be a veil tail:

Notice the length of the tail fin. That is how I define veil tail.

I'd rather be "better" than "right"! :
"Humility is the clearest indication of strength". Sure wish I was humble!

Ultimately, experience is the best teacher.

I agree on the marble... I also agree it doesn't look like a veil tail
