only 3 were recorded in history....
but i think people start to give up on recording lol.
albino i think some ppl says they come once in every 10,000 spawn.

they are genetic mutanted or whatever.

i wish i could breed it when it comes over.
but albino are quite blind so i think it wont blow the egg back up>.<
can i use my straw to blow lolz.

anyway for those who wan to know the price for these 2 betta i getting.
it is less than 100.
quite a good find.

You could always hatch artificially.

Erma of DownSouthBettas does artificial hatching. You can PM her to ask questions, altho i get the feeling she'll jump in the discussion to explain more. also Pam S has alot of experience under her belt and can contribute to this topic.

i onno... maybe he can get the job done by scent and touch. i think artificial hatching is your best bet if you get them embracing and releasing eggs.

it's ok. DownSouthbettas is a member here as well and she can tell you how you can do it yourself. saves you some vet money, too. she'll tell you what you have to get and what you have to do to get them to hatch. i'll leave her a message and have her get back to you.

Ok, I'm confused... doesn't albino mean complete lack of pigment? Not just red eyes?

Not always in fish:

with bettas, there is TRUE albino (red eyes & no pigment. not to be confused with cellos and whites, which are the same classification). but lets remember, with genetics, it's not always a str8 line. you get curveballs with every spawn

I will tell you there are far more than 3 in history. Synirr, I believe, has had 2... and I've seen quite a few more on aquabid.

As for your "albino"... I don't feel he is completely albino. It appears he may have ocular albinism, but if he were full albino, he'd have no body color, which is not the case. Ocular albinism seems to be kind of a random mutation, but who knows. Good luck... really nice looking fish either way.
