    Thanks guys, it goes great with the small group I've been building. Normal male 100% het for albino, hypo female 100% albino and now this guy. The regular male I have is HUGE for his age. He's the same age as the other 2, however, he is more than twice the size of the other two. The hypo female is 100 grams and the regular male is 211 grams and 30+ inches as of this morning. He eats the same amount as the others but he's growing like crazy. I'm anxious to see if this growth momentum continues. If so he'll be breeding size by next year but I won't likely have any breeding size females by then so he will have to wait...unless I get a larger female before then.
