Looking for an ID on these baby 1.5" plecos.
I'm thinking L306?
Thanks in advance!

Here's another photo of the plecos. That hint of yellow makes me think possible
L403?

Impossible to tell at this age and with no more information.
I have seen youngsters in this age of both species, and couldn't tell how to tell them apart.

I have seen and pictured many L306 youngsters and none have ever had a 'split' or pale line in the band on the face like the one in this picture, even though there can be quite a bit of variation in pattern. That, and the lack of red colouration, makes me think it is unlikely to be that species.
