Yeah,I've had many discussions about that subject as well! (*lol*)Once something becomes entrenched in misconception,it can be quite difficult to ever get the majority of hobbyists to re-examine their beliefs. The term "hypo" becomes a catch-all,quick marketing term for a wide range of phenotypical deviations from "normal"...in regards to the axanthic vs. anerythristic contention,I would absolutely agree with the logic presented by Joey,but it may be that beneath the visual "layer" of surface "red" once the enzymes that are responsible for the underlying base color are blocked,the results are similar in outward appearance? Those "red" line axanthics may turn brownish,or darker grey as adults?(I don't know.)
