So walmar has these white cichlids..they are really nice looking....i have 2 zebras and 2 kenyi's...i believe the white one is african as well? Wondering if a couple of them would go well with the other 4...i also need to get a bottom feeder as well...anything else besides a pleco, as they don't have any...

I'm sort of confused are they called white cichlids or are they white cichlids?

For a bottom feeder you could get a siamese algae eater but a bristlenose pleco would probably be better.

Maybe the white ones are albino socolofi. I've seen them in Walmart before. What kind of zebras do you have? Red zebras (metriaclima estherae)? What size tank?
If I can get it to work, here's a pic of one of my albino socolofi. Is that what you saw? Did it have red eyes?

Yeah that looksl like them...they had the red eyes...

Um just a 29 gallon for now..i may upgrade as i hear that will eventually be too small...for now they're pretty teeny though..i plan on adding more rock and caves...

They're white...i believe its what is in the pic posted above...i dont think they had any algae eaters, they had a few types of catfish ... maybe they will get some in eventually.

They are albino cichlids.... probably a albino socolofi like Dixie said.... also called a Snow White Socolofi.

I have no experience with them.... but, I imagine they are peaceful (in mbuna terms) like other socolofi. I usually stay away from albino variations of animals.

they are peaceful and they act just like Pseudotropheus
just make sure it's not hybrid because the hybrids have caused problems within my tanks
