The Smoky Pinoy Blue Angelfish is a captivating variant of the angelfish species (Pterophyllum scalare), prized for its unique coloration and striking appearance. This particular variant combines several genetic traits to create a visually stunning fish.

"Smoky" refers to the translucent or smoky appearance of the fish's body, which can give it a slightly ethereal or mysterious look. "Pinoy" is short for "Philippine Blue," a gene that enhances the blue coloration in angelfish. The addition of the blue coloration adds depth and intensity to the overall appearance of the fish.

These angelfish typically have a smoky or transparent body with iridescent blue markings, creating a mesmerizing effect as they swim. The combination of the smoky base color and the vibrant blue accents makes them stand out in any freshwater aquarium.

In terms of care, Smoky Pinoy Blue Angelfish require conditions similar to other angelfish variants. They thrive in spacious tanks with plenty of vertical swimming space, as they have a tall, elongated body shape. Water temperature should be maintained between 75°F to 82°F (24°C to 28°C), and pH levels should be around neutral (6.5 to 7.5). Providing a well-filtered aquarium with regular water changes is essential for their health and well-being.

These angelfish are generally peaceful but can be territorial, especially during breeding. It's essential to provide them with suitable tank mates that won't nip at their long fins. Compatible companions include similarly sized peaceful fish like tetras, rasboras, and corydoras catfish.

Breeding Smoky Pinoy Blue Angelfish can be a rewarding endeavor for experienced aquarists. Like other angelfish variants, they are substrate spawners, laying their eggs on flat surfaces such as broad leaves or pieces of slate. The parents will guard the eggs and later the fry, but it's often advisable to remove the eggs to a separate tank to increase the chances of survival.

Overall, the Smoky Pinoy Blue Angelfish is a captivating and sought-after addition to freshwater aquariums, offering a mesmerizing combination of colors and patterns that will enhance any aquascape.
