Transparent Bristol Shubunkin Goldfish 60 days post spawn

See them from the beginning.
These are the homozygous culls out of a Bristol Shubunkin spawn.  They are half the size of the calico heterozygotes and a third the size of the homozygous wild type siblings.  This is my second species to develop/isolate a transparent fish in, a world's first?  Here is my first transparent fish in a zebrafish I call absolute.  I've sent it to reachers in 18 countries.  I came to the concept of a metallic eyed transparent zebrafish while thinking about these fish and how weak they are with their all black eyes.  Hopefully the absolute goldfish will be useful to science also.
