Transparent adults

Hi Zebrafish group,

Does anyone have a strain in which the heart is easily visible in the 
adults?  I thought that there was a 'transparent' mutant, but could 
not find it in the ZFin database.  There are a number of pigment 
mutants, but I don't know if the heart can be seen in them.  I need 
the animals to be viable and have no other deficiencies (especially 
in the ears).  

Thanks for your help, and patience - I'm new to zebrafish and
molecular biology.
