    Hi guys I bought this bn for my son recently we are growing him out a little before adding him to the big tank. He was sold as an albino, however he is more reddish cream than albino. Is this just an anomaly or is there some subspecies I am not aware of? 74F59119-1FEF-4B6A-BFDA-34459BD8C49B.jpeg

    red eyes means albino

    The problem is his eyes aren’t actually red though. This is why I posed the question.

    Super Red BN's for instance have normal eyes.

    BTW it has an amazing pattern / color.

    Could you place another pic ?

    Ok so he came out for dinner. Lol, I am growing him out in my sons 40lt tank. He is growing nicely though. His color is going reddish brown . His eyes are brownish. Not red like a normal albino. I have also never seen a bn with this pattern before either.
