That's really interesting that albinos occured commonly in the wild...I didn't know that could happen!

It happens, they just rarely survive to adulthood because they stick out like a sore thumb.

That's how it is with most albinos, because outside of a snow drift, white is an easy target.

Yeah that's my understanding....I think I misunderstood your last post lol...I thought you meant albinos are common in the wild but I guess you meant long-finned?

the article I read up said that "Pale" fish were common, I don't know if this means the albinos are common in the wild, or if they were lighter colored than other plecos.
