Never heard the term applied to BN (there are type 2 albino in human albinos). Perhaps it refers to the cream colored "Blue Eyed" BN ? Though I believe those are a mutation of Brown BN, not albinos.

type 2 is the yellow-ish colour morph with the pick patch behind the head.

Was that suspose to be "pink" patch or it was really meant to be pick. If so what I a pick patch, lol!? Both of mine exhibit this pink patch when feeding or otherwise in a "good" mood.

My green dragon actually display the same thing....

Never knew it was a "trait." I always thought they all have some sort of patterning that changes with their moods Smile

Cool topic!

Thanks Doug,I have an albino that i got last week but he/she has lots of white spots all over.No idea what type that is but obviously not type 2.

Ktk,yes Doug meant pink patch. Smile


I am going out today to look for a type 2 and hopefully a baby super red to join my other baby super red.I am also after another lemon.Not having much luck finding these colours lately.

Man it's too bad you aren't in the States (for this instance) because I think they must be more common here. I haven't seen any here in Florida but I got my albinos In Michigan at a private LFS who claimed to get them from a local breeder. The one I gave to my mom shows this trait more. I will ask her to snap a pic. Good luck!

If type 2 = "cultivated form II", then, acording to Ingo Seidel, II is pinkish compering to I. IV is the fake L144 and no info about form III.

For last 2 years I haven't spent a penny on fish/fish food/etc. LFS's store credit - I'm regular supplier for 2. Problem is - my trio breeds in my show tank. It's easy to catch the fry when they're 3 weeks tops, later they get smart. I had to build the traps to catch the ones I missed without demolishing the tank. Smile
What I found interesting, male lets both females hatch eggs at the same time!

What are these albinos that people are calling golden here? They are covered in white spots?
