I now have added to my collection of kings, I would love to add another few especially the Yellow King you have in the picture. What would the name of that morph be.

One question, what on Earth is that butter yellow one??

Thank you...

That yellow one is an amelanistic speckled king that ontogenetically turned yellow as she aged.....
I consider her to be hyperxanthic and amelanistic at the same time.......and the trait is codominant as well.......

Thanks Unforgiven for the reply concerning the yellow king.

I mainly call it a Yellow Amel but it is what's described in my post.
Hyperxanthic & Amelanistic......
The Amel gene is recessive as with all amel genes that I know of and the Hyperxanthic gene is codominant.

That's great, John. I still have another few weeks to go. We'll have some cool stuff to post pretty soon.

Kings never grabbed my interest when I was younger and generally don't still, but this post of pics is giving me second thoughts.
