Red line down side of Albino pleco??

I turned on my light today and noticed from the dorsal fin of my albino bushy nose down to her tail she had red lines on both sides. They are thick lines, kinda blotchy. She is acting completely normal, came out to fight the other fish for bloodworms, and is now doing her job attacking the algae
Ive tried to look online to find anything about this but I cant find ANYTHING.
Any ideas? im about to test the water, but ive never had issues with this tank yet, I do a water change about once a week. 25%
Any help is appreciated!

I dont, my camera broke yesterday while I was releasing my birds !!!! But the lines seemed to have faded... just weird cause ive never noticed that before. I know I can see her tummy and all that, but never any redness.
Ill keep watching her and see if I can get a picture when she comes out from her afternoon nap

Well I tried to get some pictures during feeding time. It looks like its just the inside of her body....?
i dont know if you can really see from the picture or not.

If you click on the picture it will make it larger, or you can hover over and chose to see full size.

Interesting, I've never seen that before. And you say that's a new marking? How old is she? I wonder if it has to do with her maturing or something...? For now, I would just keep an eye on her and post here if you notice her acting oddly or something.

yeah i went into work and talked with them about it and they said as long as shes acting okay its probably just her insides showing through haha.
Ive had her a few months, she was TINY when I got her, now shes about 2.5 inches long. Ive never had albino fish before so maybe this is normal!? haha
Anyways, thanks! Hopefully shes fine
