Got some nice angels
 
Was at the LFS today to pick up some supplies and what not and a I guess a local breeder brought in a lot of his breeding stock and breeder size angels. He said he had too many and not enough tank space and wanted to thin out his stock and make more room. There must've been 2 dozen, mostly zebra veils and a few black's. He had them all in a 55g tank and they were going quick. So I bought 2 of them hoping I could of gotten a male and female. This is the only pic I took with my phone. I didn't want to spook them too much after I let them go.

I was told one is a zebra and the other is a clown, which is a stripeless zebra Z/S.

Nice find! I'd say the darker of the two is edging on being a super veil, both are good looking fish. I see you're from Indiana, if you're anywhere near Elkhart they have a really good auction next Saturday, I drive in from Chicago for it.
