Just added two angels to my main tank. The work really well with Bristlenose and fit in perfectly. I have never kept angels before but now I realise what I missed out on.
They where sold to me as leopard angels but apparently have now turned out to be chocolate angels. Regardless they are great for any bristlenose tank.

Hi Marty Chocolate Angels. 1514952399
Just ran across this post, and wanted to say first, what a GORGEOUS pair of angels you have, and second, they do indeed appear to be Leopards. All Leopards turn dark as they age, only youngsters are "spotted". Leopard is the result of combining Smokey and Zebra genes, you can still see the patterning in their fins. The adults do end up looking like Chocolates, but they aren't, as Chocolates carry two copies of the Smokey gene.
Anyway, they are really beautiful, are they a pair?

Love nice Angels! Sarah Very Happy

Hi thank you.
Sorry to get back to you so late I was in the US visiting a friend.
Funny how you say that about it being Leopards. They where sold to me as such. But some "experts" said that they where chocolates.
So thank you for clearing that up for me.
But they are gorgeous. But you are right they have no patterns anymore. But frisky as ever. also they are so tame. They know when it is eating time coming up to the same spot every time and eating out of my hand.
Just simply terrific fish.
