Albino Kribensis

I finally found some albino kribensis. I have been looking for a female one, because the male are more attracted to them versus the regular colored ones. Their pink bellies are so much brighter.

Here are some pics of them adjusting to their new home.

I love Kribs but have never (knowingly) seen an albino one before.
Wonderful shots! Jeff

Wow! Those are great!

Is that the male in the middle?

Lori...the one in the middle is the female. 'Kribensis' females almost always have that pink belly, though it is MUCH more obvious on that albino than it is on 'normal' fish.

I too have only heard of them and seen them in books, but have never seen one in person. They are the neatest things to look at.

I am actually hoping that all 3 of them are females. I know at least one is, but haven't quite figured out the other 2, because the males can have pink bellies too.

They're quite young and will need to grow a little more before I can determine for sure.
