a more appropriate term might be amelanistic, or maybe hypomelanistic. He has yellow and blue pigments.....but really....you can split hairs all day with these morphs and in the end you have an animal lacking pigment, and I dont really care what you call it. I'm more into science than the hobby I guess....so instead of sounding like a jerk in front of normal folks and spouting hypomelanistic or amelanistic, I just say albino, and they get it..I dont like people to think I'm talking down to them, or showing off, thats all. I guess you guys all know the special names

Thanks for your good wishes....this guy is one of a kind and I'd just die if I killed him.

It is deflated today, and hopefully if we keep flushing it, whatever is bothering its kidneys will pass. I removed a potted plant, in case extra phosphorus leaching out from the soil, or any fertilizers is the culprit.

cross your fingers
