    It's possible but you probably won't get any special patterns out of it and cross breeding is frowned upon by many in this community. Also, you'll have to do a bit more breeding because you'll only end up with poss Hets.

    You won't be the first. I believe albino Darwins have been bred with whatever keepers can get their hands on, even with dogs, cats, rhinos, elephants, canaries...

    Were the albino Jags created by using albino darwins?

    Well, since the only albino carpets that are currently accessible to the hobby are darwins, then yes.

    They will all be hets since the albino has to be homozygous

    Just to clarify. The albino gene is homozygous in albino looking animals. Other recessive traits may be hetrozygous within the same animal and so not be visible. Assuming the jungle x carpet is not hetrozygous for albino then all offspring will be hetrozygous (looking normal) for albino. If the diamond x carpet is hetrozygous for albino (visibly normal) then the some offspring will be homozygous for albino (looking albino ) and some will be hetrozygous for albino (looking normal)
