:If he's a Charcoal, how is it that he has such lovely, soft, pastel peachy/pink tones instead of Charcoal Grey tones?

Great question. I can't really answer it until I test-breed him in the not so distant future. Maybe he's hypo? Or het for bloodred? If I had to bet on either of the two, I would say het for bloodred. Of course, that IS just a 'theory' until I breed him.

:And, could you please give a description (or pic, if you have one), of a 'Phantom'?

At the below link is three examples of a 'Phantom.'

:And what are the genetics that create Phantoms?

Phantoms are hypomelanistic charcoals. Phantoms are more commonly called 'Charcoal Ghosts.' I just prefer the name phantom myself, and tend to use it more often.;)

:Thanks!

You're welcome.
