I've just been to my local LFS and they have angels labelled as Albino Scribble.

They're quite small and in the top tanks so not easy to see too well (also Hubby was getting fidgety, think he thought I was going to buy one!), all I could think they had a Marble back ground??

I have an Albino pearlscale that shows its stripes, and one that's just plain pearlscale. I'm trying to get my head round what makes an Albino different.  pale

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought a Scribbled Angle was a Coral Fish. They are blue and yellow fish.

As Phil points out there is a marine fish called a scribbled angel, however, a couple of years ago I ordered some "Scribbled Albinos" from one of our Czech suppliers.
I ordered blind based on the name on the list, but hoping they might be albinos with good snakeskin patterning, sadly that wasn't the case. My biggest disappointment with the fish that arrived was the state of their fins, followed closely by the absence of a snakeskin pattern. Close examination of the body did show a degree of "scribbling", but nothing too exciting, this was one of the fish that arrived...

Some did have a reasonable amount of glitter on them...

But overall, not enough to tempt me to work with them.

As to what scribbled is, albino silver angels have the same vertical bands that a silver angel has, but in the case of the albino the pattern appears rather like a negative. You see the same sort of  "negative" effect with marble & gold marble. In the case of these scribbled fish, I suspect the pattern is down to a combination of smokey & streaked, but don't know for certain.

Thanks Rob, that's what they looked like but without the "extra" patches, I certainly didn't think they deserved the extra £2 they put on top of their normal Angel price (which I think imho is far too high for the quality of fish they import).
