GM132 Hypomelanistic Copper Melanoid Axolotl 7-8"

GM132 Hypomelanistic Copper Melanoid Axolotl 7-8"

Introducing the hypomelanistic copper melanoid axolotl! These gorgeous juveniles are a newly identified phenotype of axolotl that I am calling hypomelanistic ("hypo" for short). This particular axolotl is also homozygous copper AND melanoid. They have significantly less pheomelanin compared to normal copper melanoid axolotls and as a result of this are extremely light in color. This listing is for the exact juvenile pictured. These are het axanthic, and have a 66% chance of being het albino. 


The father of this clutch is Galaxy, a hypomelanistic axolotl produced by Roofus Aquatics, and the mother is Mahogany, a melanoid axanthic copper (MAC) produced by Luther's Lotls.

***A note about hypomelanism: This is a newly discovered phenotype of axolotl. The mutation has been found to have a simple recessive inheritance pattern. Hypos can range from very light to nearly as dark as a wild-type.  I cannot guarantee or predict what these axolotls will look like as adults. All of the hypo axolotls listed were identified and separated as hatchlings in their first two weeks of life, using a microscope for identification and differentiation from other phenotypes.
