albinos form of a Maylandia sp (maybe greshakei or mbenji because of the color of the fins)

Albino's can be very hard to determine because they lack the usual coloration....even with normal colors it is sometimes impossible to guess the right name :wink:

Hello, I am new here, but had the same Problem with identifying my fish, which Looks quiet exactly like the one already posted. for better comparison I put 2 Pictures I found in the Internet (the ones on the left: upper left Maylandia Zebra; lower left: Ps. greshkei), but still have difficulties distinguishing both. thanks for the tip anyway, best regards, claus
