Hi Dirk,

yes, I have heard of them. As it is shown in the pic (http://garnelen-championat.de/images/gruppenbilder/gruppe8/8-Sonderformen500.jpg), these Tigers lack body coloration or stripes or both. They can arise when you crossbreed different tiger types or/and work with a large population of shrimps. As we know from Golden Snow shrimp, skeleton describes the look-through missing coloration. I have done crossbreeding red an blue tiger with the result that some offspring only had few stripes.
