A little concerned about my albino bn pleco

he's sort of got a red triangle on his head. Is this normal? Here's a bad picture

other than that he's been normal.

That's normal, even on adults. If he hangs on the tank glass, you might even see the heart beating through the pale/colorless skin of an albino or even a young brown BN - depending on the plecos age and size.

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.
