What color variety are they?

I think that
1-looks like a silver, but has orangey mark on head?
2-Gold?
3&4-Marble?
5,6,7&8- The most unique one they had in the tank! The colors do not show too great in the pics, he is more gray/brown looking and darker towards the tail. I will try to get a better pic tomorrow.

1. Zebra
2. Gold
3. Marble
4. Gold x Marble I think. It's how I classify it anyway.

I like golds best aside from double blacks but double blacks are too fragile.

No, not until they spawn. When they spawn, males' vents should be in forward position and have a more pointed tip whereas females have vents with blunt tips and a little backward in position.

Some of the angels are half the size of the others, when they are mature will they still spawn with each other?
