Not sure if this is a Koi or Gold Marble Angel. JohnnyAMH thinks a Koi and he may be right but anyway, he/she is really attractive in my 56 Planted. Getting a little better with the camera thanks to Ddavis' talk and follow up posts.

I would lean toward Koi but either could be correct.

Hey Ron,
It’s hard to guess by the picture. What would confirm my guess would be the presence of the iridescence seen in the patch of above the pectoral fins. If that iridescence completely covers the body of the fish it is very likely to be a Gold Marble. If the iridescence is in patches on the body it is most likely a Koi. Your eyes would be the best judge of that. Iridescence is hard to capture in pictures. I hope this helps you to determine whether it is a Koi or not. I love Gold Marbles and your Angelfish is a beauty… Cool
