If she is a true albino, she may have trouble seeing in the light and may be more defensive. May want to wait till its darker before going into her tank. Try not to come at her quickly or from above, as that is what a predator would do. Cover part of the tank or block her view so she isn’t as stressed by the outside world. After a while you could try hand feeding her (with tongs), it may help her to associate you with yummy treats. I’d give her more time and try not to handle her until she settles in.
