Quite simply, Apisto breeders have got more taste :-) Why would anyone breed 
an unpigmented Apisto, after all surely it is their beautiful pigmentation we 
are keeping and breeding them for.

I can't think of a single fish which has been improved by breeding for 
albinism.  OK Albino bronze corys are OK (if you like that kind of thing) but 
i've seen albino neons - what is the purpose of a neon without colour?
