These look more like Rineloricaria microlepidogaster to me, but there are several Hemiloricaria that could be possibilities as well.

Thank you Shane, I suggested R. eigenmanni only because of frequencies, I am at leat the third owner of this group, they were sale as "Sturisoma" to the previous owner, I try to recover the history of this group, but that seems difficult...

I'd go for Hemiloricaria parva which does have a bit of the look of a Sturisomatichthys.

This species was/is quite often sold as St. foerscheri, which is an invalid trade name.
For some time it was also named LG 6 before the identity was clarified.
I'm quite sure that the ID Jools proposed is correct.

This species has one oddity, unlike most or all? other species in this genus they tend to lay the (green) eggs on flat substrate like the glass plane even if there are tubes available. Mine never used the tubes.
How many filaments do they have in the caudal fin (both on top and bottom side) ?

Cheers,

Thanks Jools and Karsten
They have two filaments on the caudal fin, one on the top and another on the bottom side.
They also layed they eggs on flat the glass, even if they also have tubes available.
