I just read a blog about someone having 7 bn plecos and getting 5 regular and 2 albino. I think it all depends on genetics.

Edit: I say that because albinism is a recessive trait and not a breed in itself. The trait has been bred into bn plecos and so the gene pool has been reduced to get more albinos. So it all depends on how far down the line your genetics are.
