Well I'm thinking that since this male is heavily marbled with gold at he top that I would get some with the same marbling possibly lighter and some with the veil finnage. It would make for some pretty angels I think. I know this marble angel that I have is a sought after color in my Area.

Seems like the angels that are in demand in my area are the high coverage orange koi angels and the heavily marbled gold or blue angels.

Been doing reading and research about breeding them and their different genetic makeups to get difference color and coverage and fin style and what not. I would like to try my hand at it if I had more time and tanks.

On the one hand it is awesome that the girls are taking a liking to him. But once he pairs off you'll have a different situation happening I guess!

In my area I can raise any fry and get paid at the LFS, whatever I bring them, at a decent size, has value. Sounds like you might have a market for some marbles!

Yeah if I could sell them at quarter size and if they have good markings I could probably get 5 a fish or so.
