There is no chance that you’ll get visible albinos with that pairing unless the "normal" turns out to be a het and the 50% het turns out to be a het. You are most likely going to get 100% normals with a very slim chance of then being het for albino.

To get alibino’s both of the parents must have the albino gene:

Het albino to Het albino
Visual albino to Het albino

But remember not all your babys will be visual albino

AND if you cross het albino to het albino, the resulting normals are considered POSSIBLE hets because statisticly 25% of the "Normals" will carry no albino gene, 50% (statistically speaking again) will be Het, and 25% will be albino. You will not be able to tell the difference between the "Het Albinos" and the "Normals" until they are "proven" by breeding to be het. Albinos, well...youll know they are albino obviously.

Of course, nature being what it is, statistics are not reliable.
