So I recently purchased 2 Baby Tiger Oscars and 2 Baby "Red and Gold" Oscars which are white AND black which is something I've never seen before and hoping someone can give me some more info regarding the colouration as I have never come across them before and can't even find them on google!

They are currently in a 200L (which I know is way too small, new tank is on its way) but will be moved to a 600L at the end of next week

I have attached a picture below showing their colouration, please let me know what you all think!

Thanks! Me too!

I'll do a tank journal when I move these guys into their new tank

Very pretty Oscar's. IMO, the faded Oscar's look to be a type of Albino color morph, much like the Albino Tiger Barb.

Ahhhh that seems like a good shout! Im intrigued to see how their colours will develop as they get older as even after only having them for a week the darker of the two "albino's" had got a little bit darker and is colouring up nicely!

Will make sure to post weekly photos

Very cool!!!!!!

I think they call those lutino Oscars. Basically any albino morph that’s not a true albino. Very special indeed. They certainly do have that albino look we see in tiger barbs.

I recently made a similar purchase. I have one lutino that is a reverse of Red Oscar, and an typical albino with the Oscar pattern in red, and then a common oscar. Looking forward to more posts to see how your guys colour develops as it gets older. Your Oscars are beyond awesome.

I think your spot on!

Exactly what they are

I love the colouration on them! One of them has a much darker black/grey trim and he looks wicked!

Very cool indeed.

And I recently got this Lutino weird guy. He’s got the red albino eyes, but he’s not white, and he’s, not red or yellow. he’s this salmon sort of pink colour with absolutely no tiger marks. He’s like a red Oscar that decided to go albino, but only made it part way. Be interesting to see how our Oscars look when they mature.
