Never ever seen albino Tropheus before. Anyone know if they exist in the wild? If they do they must be very unusual.

Wow. Those are really different looking. And they seem so calm and peaceful.

think I prefer the natural colors, the albinos just look kinda funny
Don't think one would survive in the wild

Couldn't agree more. This is exactly what I was afraid off. Very soon we will have "Snakeskin" Tropheus and "All Blue" Tropheus and, and, and......
The same thing happened to the Discus and it is a crying shame. It just makes me sick ..........

There are already other line breed Tropheus on the market. I´m guessing this is one of them. Golden Kiriza.

I am not a big fan of a pale uncolored fish, although I do have 2 peacocks, a Chinese algae eater and a bn pleco of them. (bn pleco... another fish from Betty Smile )

Not a fan of albinos or any other ornamental man made fish for that matter. Mother nature did just fine on her own.
