    Congrats Marcel!
    Well i'm not a fan of albino fish, but i can level with this post :
    ''anything that can get entry level hobbyists to buy captive bred over wild caught seems like a good thing''

    Nothing to worry about. I am use to it. You should read the comments on RC.
    I think there is also a lot of jealousy involved.
    If ORA as an american well known breeder would have produced them, things would be different. At IMACSA 2009 probably around 150 people saw these albinos in person. None of them disliked the albinos. At least nobody told me so. Seeing a picture or the swimming fish is a different story.
    At least SA makes some headlines overseas.
    Any idea for a company name?
    Something that includes captive bred/aquacultured and south africa that will burn into peoples mind. That is what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for your support guys.

    I got the albinos. Now it's time for marketing to create the highest demand possible.
    That will keep prices high and allows me to spend more money for research
    and development in breeding other species.
    Still a long way to go, but the albinos will sell themselves once they end up in a
    shop.

    SAMAC sounds good. Don't forget the Proudly South African logo, now that will definitely be printed in their heads. :thumbup:
