Normally albinos goldfish must to have red/blue eyes..

Take a look at this :

http://www.fishsempai.com/journaldetail ... ategory=50

"The word ?albino? derives from the latin term albus for white. The Miriam Webster dictionary describes the term as applying to living organisms, which exhibit deficient pigmentation, for instance, the presence of milky or translucent skin, white or colorless hair, and eyes with pink or blue irises and deep-red pupils. While extremely rare, Tung Hoi is now successfully breeding these feats of science and genetics, with all the high quality attributes consistently found among its other specimens. Its red-eyed yellow Orandas and Ryukin are highly sought after by hobbyists in Japan and slowly Malaysia, but they are virtually unknown in North America! Even scientific research regarding the albino trait in goldfish is difficult to find. But for goldfish diehards, you may wish to source and read these two articles: Yamamoto, T. (1973) ?Inheritance of albinism in the gold fish, Carassius auratus.? Jap. J. Genetics, 48, 53-64; and, Takao Kajishima, Ikuo K. Takeuchi ?Ultrastructural analysis of gene interaction and melanosome differentiation in the retinal pigment cells of the albino goldfish? Journal of Experimental Zoology, Vol.200, Issue 3, 1977. Pages 349-357. These Red-eyed friends are available now to the Fish Sempai?s clients on special request with costs beginning at $200 for a 4-5?specimen."

when u see from the top, its transparent, when u see from the side, its red because they are lack of pigment which giv them colour. the red colour is the colour of their veins=). i wonder how much a albino dragoneye will cost...
