First, the Sharp strain is actually stronger than the Kahl. People used the Kahl strain (because it was common) to produce the designer morphs now available. At first no one paid attention to inbreeding and the horrible effects. Breeders who had the Sharp strain saw this and worked to prevent it from happening with this albino genotype. They bred unrelated animals and bred albinos to normals, the only albinos were produced from het X het breeding.

Brian stopped working with COLOMBIAN Albinos, in total. He used to work with both strains. After seeing the results of combineing the Kahl Albino to a Surinam, he focused his entire albino colony toward that project and sold the rest of his stock.
