    No only if you vent them. Look up "venting cichlids" can only be done when fish are 3in or bigger.

    My best guess is Metriaclima greshakei (Albino) there being so many albino mbunas that look alike is kinda hard to say and exact one. But im pretty sure is Metriaclima greshakei (Albino). Btw mbunas that are agressive african cichlids shouldnt be with fish that arent mbunas they will kill anything thats not a mbuna.
