Hi all :thumb: Great forum, I do a lot of lurking, lol.

I just had to post a couple pictures of the veil tail lutino I just got at the lfs. Very lively guy/gal :D About 6 inches long including fins. Maybe 4 without?

Thanks, One thing I wonder, I've noticed this on other full grown oscars; the tail if you look close is 2 colors. One on top and one below, does anyone know what this signifies? I had thought it was an indication of age and only guess Flippers to be about 6-9 months old?

Oscars are leucistic (also called lutino)- they are not true albinos, but are lacking most chromatophores. :)

The lower reddish color on the lower part of your oscar is common.

A few new photos. Flippers is just under 9 inches TL, lot of tail in that. I am guessing him to be maybe 9 months old?

The new camera makes all the difference in the world. That's a good looking Oscar.
