Go for the Gold with a Golden Albino Axolotl

Our lovely gold albino axolotls for sale will make a stunning addition to your aquarium. Best known for their striking color and (usually) sparkles (aka iridophores), this morph is a ray of sunshine in various shades of yellow. Lighter goldens are a softer gold, whereas regular goldens have more intense pigment. This yellow actually comes from their abundance of xanthophores in the axolotl’s skin, which tends to deepen with age. The gills of this type vary from gold to pink/peach to crimson, with eyes that are either red, pink, yellow or clearish, and reflective under direct light. There are also melanoid goldens, which lack the sparkles and shiny eye rings.

Fun fact: the albino trait was a gift from its cousin, the Tiger Salamander.
