I thought it may be interesting to post a pic of an albino/hypomelanistic intermedius that we hatched out yesterday. I am not sure why I am having trouble posting them in the gallery, an Avatar will have to suffice for now.

Perhaps you could post a pic of your light colored one as an Avatar and we could compare.
No, what I'm saying is that a tadpole seems to be able to change the pigmentation do to what appears to be a variety of conditional changes. My temps are also tightly regulated and I have still seen the changes take place. Even when stress is kept to an absolute minimum and the temps are withing the ideal range the pigmentation changes have been noted. I guess the pount I am trying to make is that just because your tadpole is lighter than the others doesn't mean it is hypomelanistic or albino...and editing a photo to further prove your rash statement is not going to buy you anything (whatever foolishness you are trying to gain). So, with that said, keep it on a realistic level.The ReturnOfJ105 said:Bill,
Our temps are regulated very consistantly. Are you saying that at, or around the time of laying, the parents were stressed causing this clutch to be lighter? Or tad stress at hatching ?

I truly hope you do not lay eggs...however, editing a photo to attempt to fool someone is only asking for ridicule. So, enough with your false advertising and childish behavior...you are only serving to hurt the hobby.
