Does albino equal Weird?
OK so I've had a lot of fish in my day, and the one thing i have noticed consistently is that whenever i get an albino version of a fish, it ends up acting kooky and dying a lot faster than its regular counterpart.
i looked into it, and human albino's tend to have a lot of mental and physical problems and albinism is technically a mutation. so my question is, would the same apply to fish? Are albino fish more prone to death?
Hi I really dont think its so, for fish. I have and albino catfish and hes the healthy one. he tends to outlive all my fish Ive had. anyway this is my experience.
the only thing i can add about albinoism, in humans they are very light sensitive.............I would think a fish with pink eyes could also have the same thing happening if your tank is really bright...........Just a thought
i've got 2 albino oscars (got them when they were about 3 inches ) that's about 10 inches now and they never seemed to act kooky or have had health issues. i've also in the past have raised other albino fish and never had any problems with them. sorry i could'nt be of any help.
