One of the most essential
resources that The Angelfish Society provides is its continuing effort
to help categorize various genetic mutations found in angelfish.
To that extent the society offers a phenotype library to both members
and non-members alike, which acts as a cornerstone for identification
of angelfish. A number of years ago the standards committee, led
by Stuart Chale, put the
edition of the phenotype library online. The original phenotype
library was an invaluable resource, and is still used by many people
to this day.
In an effort to continue this work the current standards committee
has created the Phenotype Library 2007. Similar to the first edition
library we hope that this new updated library can be used to help
easily identify angelfish.
Currently the library
consists of all known single locus phenotypes and we are working hard
to rapidly get the multi-locus phenotypes online. We hope to continue
to update and improve these pages to produce a top-notch library, so
be sure to check back often for updates. And while we will no longer
be updating the first edition library it will remain archived on the
society's web server, the link for which can be found at the bottom of
the table of contents.
Finally, we would like to thank all the people who have contributed
photos over the years via the TAS photo contests or directly to the
Standards Committee. Without your contributions we would have never
been able to get this library off the ground.
