Black fin albino

Post by sjones_1 on Sun Feb 12, 2012 9:02 pm

Hi guys,

Saw some black fin albino tiger barbs in my lfs this weekend. I haven't seen them before. They look just like "albino" tiger barbs bur with black fins. Like a cross between a normal and albino tiger barb.

Anyone kept them before? Do you recon they breed true?

The albino/gold tiger barb is a colour morph of the normal tiger barb (orange and black) I presume that the black fin albino is a further morph of the standard green tiger barb as they have solid black fins. I think breeding them you may get a mix of black fin albino and possibly green, but its hard to say. The most difficult bit would be sexing them, although gravid females you should easily see the eggs Smile

I think I'd give sexing them a good go. Crossing them would be interesting, be interesting to see if they bred true or not. Only trouble is finding a space for them.

Have you seen them before star? They're quite nice.

I havnt seen black fin albino before, but when I had green tigers one was not as green as the others and had whitish patches as it got older.
