Default My Wild type changed to Dirty Lucy Coloured

Hi everyone, my dark wild type lost pigmentation recently until she became the same colour as her Sister and tank ate who is a Dirty Lucy, apart from the black finger tips tat her sister has, hers are still white. They are both nearly 3 years old and I have had them since they were a month or 2 out of the egg. Their mother is Leucistic and father a dark wild type. The transformation took only 6 weeks and began with lighter patches which became more uniform until she lost it all. She has been like that since mid July and shows no signs of reverting to her previous colour. She seems healthy in every other respect. Has anyone any idea of why? Or know of others doing this?

I hadn't seen that fourth picture in your other thread! Is that a half-way picture?

You might have to give some information on the pictures. I assume the first one is her previous colour, the two middle ones the current colour, the fourth a picture in-between?
