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.

awesome. thanks for letting me know! he acts like a very healthy fish, chasing other fish away from his food. he's pretty rad :)
