Your options are numerous if you are willing to do some work and wait some time.

You could produce amelanistics (albinos) and anerythristics by crossing to each morph. In other words breed amel to amel = amelanistic, breed anerythristic to anerythristic = anerythristic. You could breed your amelanistic to your anerythristic to produce double hets for each trait. These would be normal in phenotype, but carry each trait. If you raise these up and cross them to each other, you will produce normals, amelanistic, anerythristic, and snow (which is amelanistic and anerythristic) in roughly a 9:3:3:1 ratio (this is very rough.

In order to produce Ghosts, you will need to cross your anerythristic with a hypomelanistic (more than likely a salmon). You will get normals carrying the anerythristic trait and salmons carrying the anerythristic traits. Hold back the salmons and cross breed those to produce your ghost boas.

Hope that helps,

Ian
