Albino black ocellaris

I will be joining mofib under a new username (cultured critters). I have some very rare fish that I would like to show everyone. Black ocellaris albinos! As far as I know, they are the only albino blacks in existence.

Sounds like a cool fish. Where did they come from? Can you post a clearer picture and video?

I'm not sure what the difference is between black ocellaris and Darwin is. You saw these fish on another forum. My partner has posted pics and information about them on a few different forums. I am more familiar with breeding and the genetics of these beautiful specimens. Thank you for any insight you have to offer.

Black or Darwin is just the same.While they are still "officially"considered ocellaris,it is likely that they will be described as a different species in the future.This is why we shouldn´t encourage the breeding of Darwins with "normal"ocellaris.
And this is whar makes your albino Darwin unique;it is not just another albino ocellaris! 8)

We're working on the next generation albino darwins. We have just paired up an albino male and female, a black female with an albino male, an albino female with a black male, and a black male and female. I'm hoping that all the blacks are hets but only time will tell. I will post some pics in a day or two.

As I explained in the other forum,66% of the blacks are albino carriers,33% are not.

I'm hoping that the four black fish I picked to pair up, are hets! That's four out of thirty. I thought it was 50% would be hets but 66% sounds better to me. I don't expect all of the blacks to be hets. Cross breeding fish won't make albinos. I personally don't like cross breeding. Both fish need to carry the albino gene in order to produce albino babies.

If you had paired two heteros,you will obtain 25% albinos. :wink:

And what would be the percentages for the albino - albino and albino - hetero? My breeding pair of darwins are hets and I have gotten 40% albino, most likely due to the way I collected them. I'm pretty sure I know the percentages on paper but I'm anxious to see it for myself.

I tried to post some pics of my next generation pairs, but the file is too big. I'll try again tomorrow.

Upload to Photobucket or Flickr, then just paste the image tags, much easier.

At 5months old they're really starting to look impressive! The orange-ish color has faded to gray. I can't wait to see how they'll look 5 months from now.
