I still think albinos are rare.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!

A member here had an albino male she was looking to home with a breeder... I cannot for the life of me recall who that was, unfortunately.

I'd really like to know what became of him.

That member had a white platinum with red eyes. A true albino is completely see through, red eyes, and blind. Ergo not capable of spawning.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Ah! Thank you for explaining!

It was still a pretty cool fish though. Is red eyes not uncommon?

Red eyes + non-albino body is an ocular albino. Still less common than your everyday non-albino black-eyed betta, but nowhere near as rare as a true albino, which lacks pigment in its eyes and everywhere on its body.

I read in an article on Betty Splendens that Black Devil and Black Ice bettas are hard to produce because they don't breed true, and getting them is "luck of the draw", but that article was written in 2005 and I'm sure that more than a few things have changed since then: http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...articleid=1040
