L002? L015? Something else?

Post by seb47 »

The importer from whom I got my L471s: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=49962 has updated his stocklist and this picture caught my eye.

He has L002 and L015 in stock but to me it looks too slender to be an L002 and the bars seem too wide, while the vermiculations on the face cross out L015 (I think). The L002 are the only Panaqolus he has in stock so I'm wondering if anyone could confirm if it is indeed L002 or a different species of Panaqolus.

Thanks,
Sébastien

That's a Panaqolus for sure. Not Peckoltia. To me, even accounting for the apparent juvenile size of the fish, the lines on the face seem to be very well separated, so I don't know if they are L002. But then again, I haven't seen young L002 to know. Could they be L169?

Cheers, Eric

Thanks Eric! They're listed as around 2"-2.5". L169 would be great as it's on my wish list :YMPRAY: hopefully there'll be a consensus!

Anyone else agree that it looks like L169? Or thinks it's an L002?
