Brevirostris vs cw027/c154

Post by plecofannz »

I notice that cw027/c154 and brevirostris are often sold interchangeably. I want to breed what is sold as brevirostris/cw027/c154 but I do want to know what I have bred and whether breeding is even possible because cw027 has not been bred while brevirostris has.
For example here:

On planet catfish, these are two separate fish so I was wondering how to tell them apart. From what I gather, there are some differences in the tail and cw027/c154 might be more chunky and get larger than brevirostris. However, there are some very large chunky brevirostris as well and the tail could be somewhat variable. Even funnier, there is no picture for cw27/c154 on planet catfish so I don't even know if I can tell them apart by pictures.
Could It be possible they are the same species? What even are the differences.
