Hoplo ID

Post by BrianS »

Was sold to me as Littorale in March of 2019 all about 1.5” long. Now at about 2 to 2.5” long. What’s your thoughts? Pectorale or Thoracata or......
Thanks.

Not a H littorale, I´m quite certain Megalichthys. What species? It does not resemble thoraca much, so I would say littorale.

Hoplosternum have a forked tail, therefore I can be so certain.
