Random Question: Albino and Non-Albino BN Plecos....

Will these guys inter-breed if put into the same tank ? Not that that's what I want to happen I just need to know if this has/can occur if they are put together and if so are the results bad (ie ugly fish)

I've searched the interwebs to no avail other than threads on other forums where people are basically calling people insane for wanting to interbreed them (again not what I want to do)

The should be able to. They are the same fish, just one has complete absence of melanin, lacking normal pigmentation.

You should end up with normal colored babies, unless both parents are carries of it.
