I have kept and bred DD Black Angels in the past but have always ended up a little disappointed because inevitably when the reach maturity they were never completely black. There was always a portion of the body that had a grayish look to it. Back in August I ran across a guy that claimed his DD Blacks would stay completely black and I bought a group of quarter size from him. Well they have just reached maturity and he was telling the truth. These are the blackest DD Blacks I have seen. Here is the first newly formed pair moved into their own tank.

Opps, that video was before they were moved. Uploading the new one, lol.

Very nice. Nope, not the only one. I'm sure there are more. DD blacks have always been a favorite around here.

Larry, Very nice looking fish and video. Iis the black the same kind of black that were the Black Angels of many years ago? All the blacks I have seen the past few years are a different form of black. More of a really dark grey than black.

These guys are really black. There is no grey to them at all. In the past all the blacks I had always had some grey to them but not these guys. I was skeptical before buying them because of that. I got them from Dave Carlson and he promised me these would be solid black and he didn't let me down.

Afraid not. They have eaten the fry every spawn. Guess I am going to have to pull the fry from the parents next spawn.

GORGEOUS!!!!

I've had issues breeding DD blacks myself, but mine were NOT as black as yours! Mine were conspecific aggressive. Have you seen that with yours?

Absolutely, but I have seen it with different strains of angels also.
