Queen of my aquarium

Hi, all! I am new to fishkeeping and just bought a completely set up freshwater 46-gallon community last night. This is the queen of the aquarium, and I wondered if anyone could tell me what her pattern and coloration are called.

That's a nice looking angelfish.

Thank you! She is big--easily the span of my hand. :)

Thank you so much! I know there are many colors/patterns, and I wasn't sure what hers are. :)

I don't know anything about identifying angels beyond species. I was going to say black striped red eyed - just picking out features. Is that what it's really called? Same goes for platys and whatnot - "what kind of platy is this?" It's a male :roll: Obviously not the answer they are looking for....
