Normal Convict and Albino Convict

Hey there!
Its me again. Ok so i have this pet shop and i know the manager and we talk and she is a really enthuseastic aquariast who i have taught the basics. She has in her store a tank for chiclids (african and americans. In different tanks though) And they have one Albino convict and a normal full colour Convict. Now the Albino Convict is bigish around 7cm and the full colour is only around 3-4cm
But Anyway she found fry ion there and when i came in she asked who do i think bred i instently thought that it was the Electric yellows because they have heaps. Then i had a look at the fry and it didnt look like electric yellow fry. So i went home and decided to do some research on this mysterious case. I noticed when i went in there the next day that there was two convicts in there oine Albino and one Normal. So i went home (after looking at the fry again) and looked at convict fry. Now it was a match.
But i dont know what will happen since the mummy is Albino and the Daddy (the little one) is normal colour. Do you guys know because i am really confused!
Thanks
Jason

First question... does it have red eyes?

A true albino does. Leucistic fish "Pink cons" which are much more common won't. It's really tough to figure out what fry different color forms will throw. Especially without knowing lineage.
