That's the problem with some LFS, they just have no idea. Onthe other hand it can be a good thing. I picked up a beautiful marble bn cheap coz they were being sold as albino Smile

Very hard to tell with plecos as they mature at a later age than bns. Wait until yours gets to around 10cm. A good way to tell with them is males get longer hairs on the end of their pectoral fins.

Have a look my first pic in the comp I last entered here.
I think my gibbiceps albino is a female. She's about 12cm or so. Notice her pectoral fins as opposed to the L168 next to her. His are a lot more hairier.

Hope that helps :P
