There's a wealth of good learning in those articles. A lot has changed in the angel world since those were written, but it's still the go-to place for basic angel genetic criteria.
.......
notched???...that's deformity....as is split caudal fins, and ventral issues...missing,stubby,etc..which are common in homogoneous pearlscale angels like Plats...

Melanomas can be a problem in some strains of albino red tux swords,and possibly others, showing up in the parts that would normally be black.

Mike Gibbs  said on one of the forums that he hasn't noticed it in any of his  ,which is good to hear since i have some stock from him   , including albino red tux from a couple drops , AKA orange blossom.
