Difficult to say for sure as they are still very young. They both appear to have part Tiger Oscar in them. Whether one has also got some Latinos or albino is difficult to say at the moment.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Okay so it's some kind of crossing between albino/tiger ? I guess time will tell, I sure hope they will show more color when they age.

I would say too early to tell! I'm leaning towards Tiger Oscar though. Lutino Oscars aren't as common as everyone seems to think. Oscars continually adjust their colors according to their mood, which in the beginning can make identification difficult. As time goes on it will get easier to tell what you have.
