So I am looking thru my newly acclimatized cories (semiaquillus, fowleri and sychri luminous) from Peru and find this oddity!


An albino (red eyes) but not totally devoid of pigment, swimming in the group. I have a few side shots and a few of the cory within the group.

Interesting fish.  Not sure I'd call it albino though, even with the red eyes.  I still haven't worked out what a red eyed fish with some 'colour' on it would be.


Albino - white fish/red eyes
Leucistic - white (or light yellow) fish/black eyes {Incomplete leucistic is commonly known as PIED}
Lutino - yellow fish/red eyes (aka xanthic)
Rubino - red fish/red eyes
Melanino - black fish/red eyes
Phaemelanino - brown fish/red eyes

I like the PIED version - perfect as I see that there is a fowleri mixed in the group as well now. It's always amazing to see what happens to a fish after they acclimatize and eat some good food after a few weeks! As well you find so many hitchhikers of different species!
