"Like if you breed albinos for example over time with selective breeding can you make extreme red albinos over time?"
Regular albinos will not reproduce Extreme Red Albinos. Extreme Red Albinos are two distinct genetic lines, Extreme Reds (a dominant gene) and Albino (a recessive gene). The only Extreme Red Line was originated by Justin Mitcham. Unless you are lucky enough to collect red animals from the same H.n. gloydi locale that Justin bred and refined to exhibit his superior reds, than no you can't reproduce the Extreme Red Line.
Best case scenario is that you could possibly make a new line of red with a lot of aelective line breeding.
It should be noted that the validity of the H.n.gloydi subspecies has been heavily disputed and many authorities no longer recognize it as there is not enough of a sufficient difference from H. n. nasicus to warrant a seperate subspecies.
