BB or ???

Hello TPT,

Its been about 6 months to a year since I bought this TB, but I have my doubts because it was sold to me as a Blue Bolt. Well six months have pass and I dont even know if i should call it a VERY VERY Low Grade BB or what else to call it. I will take a picture as soon as I get home. Let me describe it: The head most of it its white/yellwoish with some what blue color on it and the body is completely yellowish/whiteish.

Does any one know or have any idea as to what was sold to me?

Should I take that guy out of my TB tank so it does not spread the genes?

This is not the one but I think it's off spring from the one. Its king of hard to see the blueish on the head. This is a picture from a week ago.

I have golden bees with very light but distinctive blue tones in their heads that look sort of like that. I think it would be very dishonest to even say it was a low grade blue bolt though.

Looks like a golden mischling. Breed it with a Taiwan Bee. I have some F1 golden mischlings that are berried. Father is ruby red.
