Default 1/2 GFP- 1/2 normal chimera?

I have an unusual axolotl larva. A little more than half of the animal appears, while the other half is unpigmented and glows under a black light. The color divission is largely down the midline. The parents were a golden albino female and a (dark) normal GFP male (the sire's parents were a female melanistic and a leusistic GFP male).
Under a black light (and viewing in person) the deliniation is very distinct between the GFP tissue and the non-GFP tissue.
The pictures aren't great, but I think good enough. One is under normal light, the other under a black light.

That's pretty sick. To have a GFP axie at all is pretty sweet. I wish I had one.

What type of light you use? I need some informations, because i want to put some lights too, but don't know if it's OK for axies.
