    Would cross breeding between a marble red LF BNpleco and albino LF BNpleco work? I have not bought either yet and can not decide on which ones I want. I do want two and wouldn't mind if they bred so I was thinking of getting 1 of each and was wondering if they would crossbreed? That is of course depending on if I get both M and F

    They're the same species, just different varieties, so yes, they will breed together.

    Unless one knows more about the parents and grandparents of a given fish those charts are not of much use. I had a lovely group of alibino lfs- I spawned several different combos all of which produced 100% non-albino fry. These fry when old enough did throw some albinos but most of their fry did not have long fins- whether albino or regular color.
