Hypomelanistic

A morph found in many locales.  Two primary lines exist, Orangetail, and Salmon.  The Salmon line are most common, this line tends to distort patterns.  Orangetail line Hypos have shown to retain attributes of the other contributing genetics, simply incorporating  a reduction in black pigment.  The Super form is not readily distinguishable.  This morph is heavily impacted by selective breeding.  Orangetail and Salmon Hypos are of Panamanian decent.  Often incorrectly called Colombian Hypos.  There are also Nicaraguan Hypos and pure Panamanian Hypos.
