    Very neat!
    Ooh, trying to breed it is a cool idea... I bet you could get a lot of cash for three-feeler angelfish.
    It does look a little odd around the head area, but I don't see anything that looks like any sort of a problem for the fish. Have you ever seen him use the feelers? I like watching my gourami feeler his way around things, and I'm just wondering if all three of those would work for that.
    I don't really know if angels use their feeler-fins for anything, actually.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    The lump over the head just looks like a nuchal hump to me, and as far as I know, angelfish to not employ their pelvic fins as sensory organs.

    In my opinion I don't think you should try breeding that angelfish, especially if the cause of its anomaly is genetic. I may be more conservative, but with a few exceptions, I do not support the breeding of fish that differ from their wild ancestors, especially if the changes may cause discomfort. Things like balloon body rainbow fish/gouramis/livebearers, longfin oscars, bubble eye goldfish, etc.

    I have a gold/green smokey about six months old that has three ventrals..two are grown together cosmetically..could use exacto knife to separate, but I;ve left him alone..odd, yet attractive fish..completely normal, healthy otherwise.

    I wouldn't be breeding it, but I've seen angels with 3 ventrals, and they look pretty neat. :)

    Speaking of breeding with three ventrals..the smokey I have laid eggs with one of the females,but I did not see them in time before most had been eaten. Things cooled off and I don't know who he spawned with..there is six of them. Hope you are not mad I'm using your thread, jimmia
