I think people who have albinism also have extreme sensitivity to light.Fogelhund said:Albino fish do have somewhat challenged eyesight compared to their normal kin, in most cases. It seems to vary some, but it has the potential to reduce their competitiveness in a community situation.
I agree 100%. It should help level the playing field. I had a friend years ago who was albino but had trouble seeing outdoors in bright sunlight. Heavy sunscreen, long pants, long sleeves and very dark sunglasses were the norm for him when he went outdoors. (which he tried to avoid) However, indoors in ambient light his vision was much better.cichlidaholic said:I think I would be inclined to reduce the lighting in the tank and see how the fish behaves then.
