I would go for marble.

(Can't help it, but I am not a fan of albinos. No )

Wow pretty little bn. Looks calico to me. Would be very interesting to see the results of its spawn. I reckon cross it with a marble longfin, that way you can get some interesting patterns between the two. Smile

If it turns out to be a male then I'll just have it in a trio with alb lf female and marble lf female. If it ends up being female then I'll try it with marble lf male Smile

If they dont have any in LFS ask them if they can get some in. It shouldn't be a problem as they are available from wholesalers. Or you could try livefish.com.au they should have em in stock. If not I'm sure grayham mite be able to help you out once his fry are to size Smile

yeah you would think being 30min for Sydney would turn up some good results but on the central coast the aquariums are way better. They do have them (www.livefish.com.au) but its $25 for 3cm which is peppermint territory :|
