Default What color type is this? will they be sterile?

Hello

I am trying to figure out if my axies are golden albino or albino axanthic. If not axanthic could they be mosaic? They seem to have white spots all over their body sometimes but not in all lighting. If either is the case, will they be sterile?

I was told they were the result of golden albino but were very pale when I received them and are more yellow than gold now at around a year of age. I had a golden albino previously which was a good 50 shades brighter golden and had the reflective iridiphores, neither of these two seem to.

I would say albino axanthic, but I'm interested to see other respones. In my opinion your axies aren't as "golden" as other goldens I've seen, but that doesn't mean I'm right. They are still very cute though :)

Axanthic = no xanthaphores, so your axie can't be axanthic. It is a golden albino - it has xanthaphores, iridophores and pale eyes.
