Please ignore the office and the piggies in the background focus on the cuties.

Would this make Albino a ressesive gene and brown Dom? So the parents would be Bb and Bb, both hetrozygous for albino? Explaining why around 1/4 of them are albino?

These kids are from... mid December.
Yes, albino is recessive and many browns carry it. I also got a few that were an odd color. I don't know how to describe it. It's like a yellow with brown over it making them look a little green? I got one or two total. There is also a variation in the albinos. The yellow albinos grow extremely well and are on pace with their siblings. The white white albinos don't thrive well. They eat and all that, they just don't seem to grow well.

I have no idea if the greenish ones are a different color, and I don't know the genetics behind it. I'll try and catch one. The older batch are the only ones I noticed it on.
I'm not sure if the weaker ones tone down their color as a dominance thing, or if it is something genetic, or what. I'm just observing I wasn't planning on breeding plecos! It just happens...
