I just saw this in a fish store and it is an albino M. Auratus. Just curious. Does M. auratus really have albino kinds???? :?

I had an albino, but he only lived 4 hours.

The only thing I can conclude is it died from my Kennyi being dominate *which she only goes after fish that swim past her little home* or the petstore didn't take enough care of him.

I was VERY bummed.

Kenny's HATE albino fishes and that is a fact!!!!

I had several Ps. Socolofi and auratus albinos, but until they were all dead he Kenny didn't stop...

On the other hand I had albinos in another tank, without any aggressive species (if you can call a Mbuna non aggressive) and I had no problems...

Many people find albino as a degenerate and not welcome fishes, but by my opinion it is the force of nature. It is true that albino don't last long in the nature but I personally like them! It's a nice color addition to every tank…

Metriaclima lombardoi is the real name for kenyi. Melanochromis auratus is another very aggressive one to avoid if you want a calm tank. Metriaclima estherae(red zebras)can get pretty mean too.
