Both from the LPS in a mixed African cichlid tank. I bought them a month ago and have been researching ever since.

Is it ok to call the pink one an Albino? Maybe she is a red zebra hybrid? She is 4 1/2 inches long, has pink eyes, no color markings/stripes whatsoever, little bit shy right now and wants to hide behind the nursery we set up for some 1 inch juvies.

I could not find any images for the marbled guy but a rough guess as to species from one of you would be greatly appreciated. He is 5 inches (was 4 when I bought him), and a bit bossy to tank mates and constantly rearranging the gravel, sand, shells and rocks. Stripes are not visible except on film.






Thanks for your help.

First one is an OB Albino zebra, which species is impossible to ascertain.

The second appears to be an albino Metriaclima greshakei.

Boy! That marbled OB zebra is one gorgeous fish.
Fogelhund, are you sure it's albino, though? I know you know wayyyyy more than I do about fish but it's eye doesn't look albino to me. :-?
