Salmon Ghost

I suppose these aren't easy to come by! I'd love to have one.

Do you mean a Coral Ghost or a Salmon Snow? I've never heard of a "Salmon" Ghost. JMG Reptiles has several of both for sale at the moment.

These are a confusing bunch, and I'm not sure there's consensus yet.

Coral ==> http://iansvivarium.com/morphs/speci...guttata/coral/
Coral Ghost ==> http://iansvivarium.com/morphs/speci...a/coral_ghost/
Salmon Snow ==> http://iansvivarium.com/morphs/speci...a/salmon_snow/

I've got coral ghosts and salmon snows (not sure I'll actually part with the salmon snows though).

Per Jeff Sr. at JMG, his Coral Ghosts are actually a true Ghost, not an anery strawberry. My understanding is that the coral gene in JMG's coral Ghosts and the Salmon gene in their Salmon Snows is the same gene and is also the same gene as is in SMR's Corals and Salmons. Don and Jeff obtained thier original stock from the same breeder. Maybe someone can correct me if I am wrong, but that was my thought.

Too bad they can't decide on either "coral" or "salmon" for the name of that gene, then!

Jeff of JMG used to call both of his lines Coral Ghost and Coral Snow. I think someone a while back changed the name to salmon snow. Heck, it's no different than someo f the other already established trade names being changed because the masses decided it need to be. A few examples that jump to mind are Ultra Hypo to Ultramel, Original granite to Terrazzo and Bloodred to Diffused.

The name Salmon was coined by Jim from SW Reptiles; I believe he is where it all started; if you don't count the fact that he got his original animals from Don Soderberg's Coral line. Strawberry is part of JMG's animals. I've proven that out by test breeding. I do believe there is something else other than strict line breeding going on though. My guess is something along the lines of Redcoat or Neon in addition to Hypo and Strawberry. Test breeding for that hypothesis will start this season.

So... confusing. Mine are from JMG stock if that helps.

Samby - asked you for pics.

I didn't see any coral ghosts on JMG's page, just checked. I found them but not for sale. They are gorgeous!
