After the albino ratfish was caught the researchers attempted to keep her alive in a bucket of water but, in spite of boards placed over the top, she managed to flip out of the bucket onto the deck during the night. She is now preserved and part of the UW Fish Collection, which has 82 other ratfish specimens, ranging from eggs to full-grown adults. The collection, which focuses on North Pacific and Bering Sea fishes, is needed by researchers on and off campus to identify species and to understand fish biology and conservation.

In 2009, 10 rare albino arowana traveled via police escort to the Aquarama International Fish Competition in Singapore — the aquatic equivalent of the Westminster Dog Show — where armed guards stood watch to prevent anyone from adding poison to the tanks.

The albino rainbow shark was my first shark and is my favorite as long as you have hiding spots its not very aggresive and can even go with my other fish like my bullhead catfish which is a very agresive fish but they coexist fine The albino white-spotted ratfish caught this summer during a marine survey in 's Puget Sound is the first albino fish ever spotted by local scientists.Albino Fish The leucistic Long Finned Oscar is native to Peru, Colombia, Brazil and French Guiana and occurs in the Amazon river basin, along the Amazonas, Iça, Negro, Solimoes and Ucayali river systems, and also in the Approuague and Oyapock drainages.This study reports a case of partial albinism in Rhinelepis aspera from the Aguapeí River, Upper Paraná Basin, Brazil and provides a review of albinism cases in freshwater fishes from South America. The captured specimen has depigmentation throughout almost its entire body, with pigmented eyes and little dark spots on the dorsal and caudal fins. It is an adult male, and we suggest that due to the benthic habitat, it would be able to reach adult size, avoiding predators. The review shows a scarcity of this phenomenon in nature.Albino Oscar (Astronauts Ocellatus) — Oscar origins are often from the waters of South America and in the waters of the Amazon. They can be found and are native to areas in Brazil, French Guinea, Peru and Columbia. In nature the Oscar can grow up to 17 inches and are a very hearty, thick bodied species. Oscars are a pretty aggressive species and love a stable diet of insects, small fish and crustaceans.Visitors to the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News got a surprise recently when they saw an albino catfish sucking on a pacifier in its tank.Several people have emailed me photos of Yellow Tangs with white patches wondering what caused them. I have even seen a few of these fish myself. At first I thought the condition represented partial albinism of some sort, presumably caused by a genetic variation. In support of this, Dr. John E. Randall writes:The fish, known only to the staff as the "Albino Catfish," was born in a hatchery. Due to its decreased chances of survival if released into the wild, it was turned over to the Virginia Living Museum to serve as an “animal ambassador.”
