My new awesome find!!!!!!

Long story short. I went to the LFS today to pick up a Jave fern and I stumbled across this. An adult golden marble angel! This is huge, he had it in a special tank by itself cause it kept getting picked on in the tank's he was putting it in plus, it came in with tattered up fin's from the owner I guess. So he was gonna save it for the display tank he's currently redoing. He's knows I have an angel exclusive tank so he showed it to me, said he would sell it to me. If it doesn't work out I will take it back to him. So I'm hoping my other 3 angel's will accept it. It is very reclusive and scared and want's to be by itself right now and very skittish of the other fish. So with some TLC from me I'm hoping it will recover. Here's a few pic's, the pic's don't do it justice for it's true size.

His tank mates are not picking on him? Is he starting to "mingle" a little?
Do you know if you have any other males in your group of 3?

He's starting to mingle some. My 2 golden's are female and the smallest koi I think is female too. Actually my one golden that laid eggs is showing the same behavior as before when she laid some. The new gold marble is showing a lot of interest in her. So I'm almost positive that the big marble is a male.

That golden angel that I think will lay the eggs is a veil fin too. So they would male some nice looking spawn. Wish I had a tank to breed them.

I'm interested in what you think you will get with the pair you mentioned Luke..I have a good supply of lightly marbled angels almost grown to adult, wondering what besides more gold to "blend" them with. These fish I have come from a true gold female and a lightly marbled gold male.
