This one has been stumping me for a while now. He's definitely too dark to be a silver, but he's got the eye stripe(and I think I see a tint of red when I look closely at his eyes, like the wild silvers) and stripes like one(not all of them are 100% complete stripes, but he's definitely got stripes and NOT blotches like the marbles and kois do). He's also got a lot of bronze on his dorsal fin(which I think is gorgeous <3) a VERY slight tinge of gold on his back(that I don't think showed up in the video) and white ventrals. It's just a curiosity thing, more than anything. I ADORE this little guy! Too bad he won't sit still for a second so I can get a good photo of him!

it looks like the the ones from this video. its been a long time since i watched the video but i think the guy bred some type of wild angel to a koi and got a bunch of fry that looks kinda like the one you got. dont know if thats what you got but looks like it

I would classify him as a marble. Mostly black and silver even thought there are other colors present. Apparently there has been several color variations bred into this fishes lineage.
