Albino fish???

I have some baby guppies in my tank they must be a good few months old now two have got a lovely orangy coour starting but my other male is completely clear (same as when born) can you get albino guppies or is this a sign he's a light coloured fish?? Cheers 😊

You can get albinos but real albinos have red eyes.

With my guppy strains I often get some that are called 'blondes', they have a yellow body and usually no coloring, they are culled.

I agree with jeta. Albinism occurs in most species, but real albinos have red eyes because they cannot make pigments at all.
You just have a pale guppy.
