The thing with the leucistic gene is that it is a dead end gene. All you can do is make a white snake no matter what you breed it with. Co-doms will hold their value much longer than an epistatic gene like the leucistic.

The codoms we currently see can at least be mixed with other genes to produce different combo morphs which stretches the market.

To me a leucistic anything is not an investment morph as nothing could be added to it to change it.

They are cool looking for sure but not the holy grail of any species in my opinion. I think pieds are MUCH cooler and versatile.
