I have some cories that are pretty white with only a little pinkishness, and some that are almost a salmon color. What determines their colors? Diet? Genes? Environment? Age?
Thanks. I should have clarified that I understand the albino characteristic itself is determined by genes.The albino gene is a recessive one. It has to be present in one or both parents or it can't show up. True albinos have red eyes. They can have some pinkish color to the skin, and usually do over being WHITE. =) So basically it's all in the genes and has nothing to do with age, food or environment.
