I didn't see any Albinos. Albino fish have red eyes. Yours' look like a potential hybrid. I'm sorry.

Hybrid ?... Think you are incorret a hybriid is when 2 different type of fish breed together to make a hole new species. ( A hybrid is the combination of two or more different things. ) Correct me if i am wrong but are you saying that it is not a cichlid :-?.

Florida girl has it totally mixed up with the hybrids, i think she is getting confused with the meaning of Albino and your photos.

The pink fish is neither a hybrid nor a albino. It is a version of a red zebra as the cherry red zebras. Not to mention look up the profile for metriaclima estherae O, then scroll to the pink! picture, the pinks aren't nearly as bright that are common in the aquarium stores however, they are true red zebras not hybrids, and not albinos, an albino has red eyes!

I have Metriaclima Estherae, and have never had the light ones like that in my tank. I had one male that was slightly lighter. Just my experience. :) But, as I said, they are not albino.

I actually have 2 of the females of the "blues" and one of the blue males in a fry tank they are about 1 and a half inches long... I will get a couple pics in the morning... (I am a huge red zebra fan, can you tell, lol) I am wanting to pair mine up to breed.
