OK for those interested in the myriad colours of axies and for my own edification I have prepared the attached table.

I have tried to make it more complete than other information that is freely available by trying to deal with the effects of various gene combinations. Don't know why but they never really seem to be discussed n any depth.

This is a work in progress but if anyone has any references that say different or knows better then I would love to hear what they have to say. Otherwise this is published for everyones reference. I hope it is found to be useful and apologise if I have made any mistakes. I welcome any and all corrections or discussions. Please email them to me at mikflounders@yahoo.co.uk.

Finally please note I am engineer not a biologist or geneticist but I find the subject as fascinating as axies themselves

This is fantastic!! I love a spreadsheet, so this helps me wrap my head around the topic. I'm glad you touch on all-black axolotls (do they have a special term?). I can't seem to find much information on what their actual genotype can be, but I'm very curious because My black axie has fathered a group that is now reaching maturity, and it would be helpful in considering future pairings. Anyway, thank you for your work on this!

I would note that it is untrue that axanthics die before sexual maturity.

Melanistic opposite of albino, happens in most species occasionally but is a dominate gene in Axolotls. true melanistics have no iridophores (shiny bits). if it has iridophores in the ring around the eye its a dark wild type.

honestly, i find it hard to believe you even tried googling what an all black axolotl is called. its not rare at all
