I have A few extra male albino right here sliders and I was wondering what happens if you breed an albino male to a regular female just curious haven’t been able to find any definitive evidence about this by googling but from what I know I could be wrong if I breed a male albino to a normal shouldn’t it be 50% albino and 50% het I may be wrong are usually breed full morphs to full morphs just curious to be honest

Because albino is a simple Recessive gene both parents must have the gene to produce albino babies so if you breed an albino to a normal you will get all normal looking animals that are 100% het for albino ( meaning they have the gene but don’t show it ) breeding those babies back to an albino would then produce about half albino babies.
