It's very possible. They are of different strains but still the same species. The outcome of fry is still the same. Some will be albino, some will not.

I found out the male kribs like the albino females so there you go.:tongue:
I realise this is a very old thread, but I thought I'd get my tuppence worth in :wink:

The reason males often prefer albino females is that the pink/red belly that they display during spawning time is more radient in albinos and so they appear more attractive to the males.

For some reaosn that I'm not sure of however, it is more diffucult to breed an albino male with a normal female.
