ALBINO OSCAR - 5CM
As evident by their name, Albino Oscar Fish are white in color. Having a smooth texture, they sport bright white scales. This is the third and final parental type variant of Oscar fish, along with Red Oscar Fish and Tiger Oscar Fish.
It should be noted that they are not entirely white since you can see orange or reddish lattices closely intertwining in the lower region of their bodies. The complexity and density of these patterns vary from individual to individual. In fact, it is said that no two Albino Oscar fish have the same pattern. They also have a velvety texture to their bodies.
The white color is due to the lack of melanin in their bodies. However, albinism doesn’t affect few color cells, such as carotenoids, which are responsible for the orange and red color, and xanthophores, which are responsible for the yellow color. This is why Albino Oscar fish can still retain their orange and red tinges while losing the darker hue from their bodies.
