Gold Blushing (AKA Sunset) Angelfish

Gold blushing angelfish typically have a white body with a gold/orange crown, hence their alternative name of sunset angels. Like other blushing varieties, as youngsters they often have translucent gill covers giving them the typical blushing appearance, whilst as they mature they develop reflective patches of irridophores which contrast with the generally matte appearance of their skin.
Compare them with other blushing varieties, silver blushing, koi (blushing gold marble), and with normal gold angels.

Genetically they are homozygous for both gold and stripeless written as g/g - S/S.
