When some thing is het, there's no way to physically tell. If the gene shows at all, the fish or any animal is considered that morph. Only way to know is to know the parents, if one was platinum then Yes it would be het. I agree with Dave.

Normal colored RTC, just pale, which can occur for a number of reasons.

BTW, them severums and other similar tank mates might be eaten by the catfish sooner or later.

Can you please post a link to the video?

Just because some guy calls black white, doesn't make it so. You'd be surprised that internet and YouTube is an ocean of ignorance and conceit.

Are you talking about paul cuffaro? The one he calls an albino is most def not an albino. He has one albino and one regular rtc. Dont know why he is calling it albino. He has no clue of what he is doing at all. He has already killed one albino rtc. These youtube money makes people stupid.
