    Beautiful, they look really healthy nice fat bellies :) The albinos are easily sexable once they get a little age on them. The males have a defined red spot on there heads whereas the females do not. This spot normally develops even before the bristles.

    This can be true; however, I have two male adults in a 29 as well as a 30 with no problems and they have been together for several years now. It is really all dependent on the fish as well as if there is enough hiding spaces.
