471 or not?

Post by fishyfish00 »


I recently bought a group of Hypancistrus sp. l-471 but some of them look like they might be something else. Although it's not always reliable parameter, their patterns and the white dot covering looks off in some individuals. I suspect that the big spotted individual is a l-471 while the small spotted one might be a l-201. What do you guys think?

I can take better pictures if it is needed :)
