Fish Connoisseur: The Platinum Pearlscale Angelfish
Platinum Pearlscale Angelfish (p/p - pl/pl), Pterophyllum hybrid. This fish is a result of homozygous recessive genes in a loci for pearly/shiny malformed scales and in a loci for lack of color. The platinum line was derived from a gold line where the yellow color was bred out. They may also show a tint of green or blue.
