Blue Angelfish

Blue Angels, also sometimes known as blue silvers are one of the newest angelfish varieties. The colour is due to the addition of two philippine blue genes which adds a metallic blue sheen to what would otherwise be a normal silver angel. Although both Singapore & Czech examples of this variety are now coming into the UK, our stock is derived from fish bred in the Philippines by Ken Kennedy, the man who first identified the philippine blue gene. The photo on the left is of one of Ken's fish, whilst the fish on the right is a youngster bred from one of Ken's fish crossed with one of our platinum angels.

Although blue angels are spectacular fish in their own right, we think that some other blue varieties are even more stunning, these include blue ghost, pinoy, smokey blue, and smokey paraiba.
