i have him on pellets as his staple and feed him lots of meaty foods like beef and chicken heart and earthworms. The only thing that has survived him is a 18 inch pleco. Hopefully i will be able to replace the pleco with my delhizi bichir soon. If he allows it haha

[quote="kylehansen"] Here's a pic of my 16 inch albino oscar "Mr. Brain".



hey kylehansen, it's a nice pic of your 16 inch albino oscar. As we are discussing about Albino Oscar so sometimes a question just gets in my head and I have to have an answer. The latest occurrence of this is related to Albino Oscars and Lutino Oscars. What are they? This led to many hours of researching numerous articles on the Internet and I came to a single conclusion. No one, even in science, has a definitive answer. Of course, science understands albinism. We can readily identify a true Albino Oscar by an absence of dark coloration and red eyes, but what makes an albino an albino? And what is a Lutino Oscar? Is it a form of partial albinism? Is it an example of leucism? Or is it something else.

This is where there are differing opinions and there are no absolute answers. Because the answers are not written in black and white (at least not where I've been able to find them), we are left to draw conclusions, which is what this article is all about.

a genetic flaw that we have exploited through selective breeding.

a lutino oscar or bird for that matter is similar to albinos but there is a retention of one or more pigments.in oscars cases it is usualy the red and oranges that remain so you get a white fish with beautiful red markings.aparantly the most sought after lutino oscars also retain some black pigments in the fins but not the body.and i believe leucism IS being partialy albino.at least in the snake and bird world.
