Hi
I got them when they just were 4 cm, and now 1 year later they are 20 cm
I did at a time think it was L 025, but i have 4 L 025 and these 2 looks different so i guess it is not L025.
So its L 600 i think .

Hi Henrik,

L 600 is just an invalid L number for Pseudacanthicus leopardus.

However, I'd say this looks more like Pseudacanthicus cf_leopardus.

Hi,

I still tend more towards P. leopardus but L 114 (P. cf. leopardus) is certainly also an option.
Usually pictures in the water are better to judge colour and pattern.
