Albino Tetraodon schoutedeni

Post by preston143 »

Of the well over 5,000 T. schoutedeni that I've spawned and raised, I've never seen an albino. It is an F2. Image

They are a different color than the normal fry, but the they also have red eyes.

I can't wait to see what a gorgeous adult it becomes!
I have tons of folks looking for this species at a puffer group on Facebook. Do you have any to sell? I would be very interested in some (especially this guy!)

Are you this YouTuber? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThYHZ_TQFYs (If so, I'm a huge fan!)

I like the look of the leucism much more than the albino.

I've found that I only get the albinos when spawning my F2 puffers together. I do not get them if spawning an F2 with a wild-caught. Or an F2 with an F3. Are you seeing anything like that with the leucism?

Hello.
I am managing that Youtube.
Thank you for watching it.

I too prefer the white variant to the albino.
I have not succeeded in breeding F3 yet, but I have spawned many times, the F3 male seems to be still immature.
