I recently bought 2 albino peacock cichlids from different stores and was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what kind of peacock they are?

You can't really know an exact species.

The first may be a more "natural" albino Aulonocara stuartgranti type. Some of those seem almost blind and move timidly.

Is the second one really that pink? Can't really tell. That is a hybrid a mix of abnormal genes, they call them various names.
Thank you I appreciate the help. The second albino is a bright tangerine color. The color differences between the 2 is what is making it hard to figure out if they are the same type or not lol
It's hard to tell but if they were from the same spawn the males have deeper color and females have lighter color. Red color in the males can be a result of selective line breeding or juiced diet. If they r juiced the color will fade.
