|What Is This Albino Cichlid?|
I have an online friend who has asked me to help him to identify one of his recent purchases, or more appropriately said, a "mystery fish" which was recently bought by his wife, along with three other fish. I suggested to him that it looks like an albino Labidochromis Caeruleus, if such a fish exists.
If you'd care to have a look at some images of the fish, and make a stab at its proper identification, please go to the link below:

My guess would be an albino zebra if we are refering to the first picture. It looks just like my albino zebra I currently have.

Sir Syklyd, I would have to agree with the Pseudotropheus thoughts. Here is a picture I found online of an albino and it looks pretty close to your picture. The only real differnce I see is the one in your picture has a pointed tips on the anal/dorsal fin and the fish in this picture does not...
Yellow Labs don't have that body shape so I definitely don't think it is that. Someone else may have a different view on that but in my experience they are taller and not as long as the fish in your picture. Hope this helps...
