Pinoy Angelfish

The word Pinoy is used to describe a black fish that is homozygous (2 doses) for the pb gene. Genetically if the fish carries a dark gene and is homozygous for the pb gene then it is called a Pinoy. The word Pinoy can also be used as a descriptor on other Phenotypes to indicate that it also carries a dark gene. So a Pinoy Clown would be a fish that is at least het (single dose) but could carry 2 doses for the dark gene and homozygous for the Philippine Blue gene (plus a zebra and stripeless gene).
