Been seeing these showing up on my FB page recently. Color is otherworldly and looks transgenic.

Anyone know the history behind this fish?

Bumping up again. Seems odd that a fish with this kind of color has so little distribution or conversation around it.

Hi,

there is an article about this and the even less known "red albino form" of CW010 in the current issue of the BSSW-Report. Obviosuly, I can not publish it online now, but I will happily do so in a while from now.
