Okay

Since I adopted mine rather large, say you want an albino.
True all white..is it a crap shoot ?
Honestly, I didn't get what you mean. Could you express yourself clearly?

as far getting an albino versus a lutino, it is almost a compleatly crap shoot IMHO, you can make an educated guess from looking at the pupils closely. they should be pink, not black. again this no sure thing. If I had a choice i would rather have nice blond lutino than an albino, true albino have vision issues, and seem a bit more fragile. in all honestly unless you know what you are looking for average folks could not tell the deference,

FYI the red on a tiger is found on both albino and lutino, this is not a pigmentation. its a color refraction of the scales.

Albino's are capable of producing very vivid orange/red pigmentation. it's the darker colors (black, green, etc...) they are incapable of producing.

Lutino Oscars are capable of producing all pigmentation. Which means they are not Leucistic or Albinos. They are a developed color variety I have not quite figured out the secret too, not a genetic mutation..... unless its some type of piebalding. Although a leucistic Oscar would be capable of producing very subdued oranges/reds/blacks. Certainly not the very vivid oranges and very dark edges to fins we see in Lutinos..

www.oscarfish.com/oscars/83-all-about-os...ino-and-lutinos.html

An all White Oscar with black eyes would be a Leucistic Oscar. They are very, very, very, very rare.

Albinism and Leucism are genetic mutations an animal is born with. You would be able to distinguish a baby albino by the eyes, they will be pink/red.

its my understanding that the red on a tiger is not a pigmentation, but do to the light refraction of the scale itself, these are 2 different things,

Ok :thumbs: Thank you, now I completely understand your question (my English isn't great). But I unfortunately can't answer it because I never breed Oscar fish, but on the other hand here we have people like Kmuda and Popps who are very in of all about Oscars, lucky us :happy:
Look at the first pictures of my Oscar when I just bough him/her, on page 1- that was his/her coloration so it is typical Lutino Tiger Oscar and I hope you would be agree with me. Also the size of my baby Oscar was around 3 inches and I guess 3-4months old :thumbs: :darth:

Today, was drinking coffee and relaxing in front of the fish tank and in one moment just like that I was inspired to take some photo shoots. Sorry, I know that I post too many pictures :snicker: but I hope you would be agree with me that a lot of people like to show off with their pets :snicker:
So that is a close view of Animal, the Lutino Tiger Oscar :darth:
