It's a fair cop.....

But there are a few interesting points to these

#1 is ghost
#2 is a blue clown
No. 1 is quite young, so his dorsal striations haven't fully developed, but compare the fin pattern
now look at #5 and you'll see that he too has a zebra gene, which strictly speaking makes him a blue leopard rather than a blue smokey.

The gold marbles are only gold marble veils, not as some might suspect, super veils. The second of these might be considered a combtail.

The blue clown and the paraiba appear to be heterozygous for pearlscale.

The gold marbles, and the last two marbles are all siblings, and part of a long term project

I see what you mean now about the zebra pattern in the fins. I did miss that. The blue leopard has obviously lost the spots indicative of a leopard tho.

I thought the blue clown was actually a blue ghost.

I would never have guessed the blue clown and paraiba were het pearlscale.

Ok, to be accurate Norton says that only smokeys that are homozygous for zebra develop the leopard pattern, and even then only if raised with a short light period....
http://theangelfishsociety.org/articles/norton/dr_norton(10).htm
mine get a long light period (about 14 hours) and that fish almost certainly only has the one zebra gene.....
maybe Blue smokey zebra would be a better name.

I would never have guessed the blue clown and paraiba were het pearlscale.
look closely at the texture of the skin on the blue clown, and compare it with that of the gold marble in the photo below, then look at the paraiba just above his belly and directly behind his gills.

The gold marble veils are fantastic! It would be interesting to put a het pearl under the microscope and compare the scales to normal ones.

Yes, that's something I'd like to see too. I do have a photo on my website, click on the link kindly provided by Lisa then click on varieties, and pearlscale, it doesn't show normal scales, but it does show pearlscale and a fish that's heterozygous for pearlscale, although not at the magnification you'd get with a microscope.
Glad everyone likes the photos, I'm really pleased with the way the gold marbles, and their marble siblings are developing, their mother was a gold who was heterozygous for pb so there's half a chance they might have a pb gene too.
