Doesn't matter how much I read about genetics I cant wrap my head around it. Can someone dumb it down in the simplest way and advise what color I should breed with my white albino Axolotl so that I have an assortment of colors.

https://www.caudata.org/forum/showthread.php?t=81547
this is her in the link and a short history on her genetics

Jinians post was almost spot on with the color ratios in the batch. there was only a handful of albinos, lots of wild type and an equal amount of golden and leucistics

If you didn't read the post the white albino I'd like to breed came from a wild type male and either a wild type or leucistic axolotl female, I originally thought wild type in the previous post because I thought my leucistic was a male (he's actually a she).
If you look at the juvi in pic three in the link it looks very much like my axolotl bandit who is a heavily spotted leucistic, I've added a pic for reference.
and the albino is the one I'm talking about when she was a juvenile.

My main questions are.
What colour variation should I be looking for to put with my white albino to have an assortment of colors if
1. parents are both wild type, or
2. parents wild type and leucistic

For the most variation, you want to breed your albino with a wild-type. (You’ll get even more variation if it’s a GFP wild-type.)

Bandit is gorgeous!

Unless you know what carried recessive genes they each carry you'll just have to take pot luck.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated

    Hi...I used to have a Doctor Fish business...I closed about 3 years ago, but still have lots of big, chunky filtration rocks (lava) how could I clean a few of these to use with my Lottie, please? Would they help or hinder overall tank health? don't want to cause her any problems...love my girl to bits!! many thanks in advance. xx
