Cichlid - Identity/Sex?

Hi all,

I recently came into possession of an albino cichlid I have no idea what is or what sex. Picture below...



Any chance someone can sort me out?

Cheers in advance

Don't know if it's an albino since there is no red to the eyes, but I think it's a hybrid of some sort of snow flake socolofi and a hap.

I don't think Mbuna and Haps will cross, but what it is I couldn't say.

So just work with some sort of hybrid? Guess it's hard to identify a fish without any real markings

They can and have. I've seen a photo of the offspring of a kenyi x nimbochromis and also the offspring of a yellow lab and malawi eye biter.

The fish in question looks like some sort of (or part) albino dimidiochromis sp.
