Rep: littleelliott is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Albino turning yellow

Hello again, everyone. Another quick question about my axie's health. Just recently got two axolotls, one albino, and one wild type, both 6 months old. I've had them for about a week now, they aren't showing any sign that they are unhappy, by a good appetite, straight gills and tail, and exploring the tank and hideouts. However, this morning when I woke up, I noticed that my albino was looking yellow. It was very surprising to me, as she/he is usually white and almost see-through. I'm not sure if the colouring is normal, or if it's algae related. I have three moss balls in the tank.

I can provide pictures, should it be needed :)
