amazing genetics in my BN Plecs :)

This is really fascinating ..... My 2 adult BN are both the normal , dark colour with white spots....BUT!! The fry they produce are 3 different colours
1st: normal (like parents)
2nd: albino* (yellow body, no pattern, blue eyes)
3rd: albino** (yellow, with pattern, red eyes)
I just think its amazing that the parents have such diversity in there genes to produce fry like this :):):)

I know its pretty common for about 1/4 of bristlenose fry to be albino, no matter the parents. Most commercially available BN have the recessive trait for albinism. I have never heard of the blue eyes thing, but it may also be common.
