I have two new batches of sp. 44 fry that are about a week old now and all the fry except for one are dark in color. The "odd-fry-out" looks more of a white.

Albino possibly? What are the odds that the genes for albinism (mom and dad aren't, though could be carriers SOMEWHERE down the line for all I know) only affect one of 15 (or 30 if it's the daddy's genes) fry?

I've had some white looking fry when they are pretty new. They seem to get their natural coloring a month or two later.

could be albino, but sometimes it also could just be a runt of the batch....
