There are only really 3 species of angels with a ton of colour variations:

Pterophyllum scalare
Pterophyllum altum
Pterophyllum leopoldi

It's definitely not altum I think it's leopoldi.

That is a variant of scalare. It is neither koi nor blushing, although it has gold in it. Probably gold marble, even though it isn't showing much marbling.
