Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Question Golden Albino + Leucistic = ??

This may seem like a really silly question, but the breeding pair I will be buying juvies from in a few weeks are golden albino and leucistic. Is there any chance of the babies being dark or having dark spots? I know nothing about their genealogy other than that.

I would hate to buy one thinking it is light-coloured only to have it turn dark later on... my partner has a phobia of eels and he has said a dark-coloured axie is out of the question as it will spook him out a bit too much, which is the last thing I want (I personally don't see the resemblance, but it's not just about me!)

Many thanks for your advice in advance!

Default Re: Golden Albino + Leucistic = ??

It depends entirely on the recessive genes that are hidden. If the albino carries a leucistic gene or the leucy carries albino you'll get some of each.

In any case you'll get at least 50% wildtypes, possibly more, even 100%.

Try axolotl.org for genetics info
