Nothing harmful was done. It was selectively bred to achieve such strain. It is considered tyrosinase-positive albinism. There are a few more fish that are just as expensive, the gold barramundi (I believe tyrosinase-negative albinism) and platinum barramundi (tyrosinase-positive albinism), both owned by a person who is a member of the ACA bot. A few other examples of rare morphs are xanthic Polypterus mokelembembe and then xanthic Rita rita but they're all monster

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
