L129 or L204 ?

Post by kiwidu21 »

Hello,

I just bought 3 L129s and on one of them, the seller told me he was hesitating between L129 and L204 (his supplier sold him as an L129).
What do you think?
They measure 4 cm, is it too young for an identification?

First the two L129:

And finally the supposed L204:

Bottom looks like a clown pleco, Panaqolus maccus or L448, although the eyes look big for a clown. Do you have more pics?

Cheers, Eric

Side pictures would be best..... but all look like L129's to me.

Take care,

Thank you for your answers.
I'm taking other photos as soon as I see it (they just arrived so I wouldn't want to stress them out by catching them).

Hi,

they are all Hypancistrus and likely debilittera.
