Today i was at my local aquatics store and i saw some longfin albinos and unfortunately they were £25!!!!

However i turned to another tank and saw a fish i just had to get. it was a male gold ancistrus/ bristlenose.

so i bought it lol! however i think it is actually an albino could somebody put pictures of both up here please.

lol! i wont mind either way just such a pretty fish.

If its got a red eye then its an albino, if its black/blue eye its a L144( I know that its not really L144, but everyone calls it that and it is accepted as such,in my neck of the woods). I have both versions in my fishroom, if only the were gold bodied longfin with a red eye. I would pay good money for them. Smile

There are variations of colour for albinos' yours' is probably the golden variation.

Albino lack the the melanin pigment which is responsible for all dark coloration but other types of pigment cells, such as carotenoids (reds, oranges) and xanthophores (yellow), are unaffected. Dependent on which pigment cells the albino carries leads to the variations in colour.
