Can anyone confirm if they are starlights?

It looks like an L181...aka....L071 Peppermint, L183 Starlights keep a white edge to the dorsal fin which is why there also known as the White Seam Bristlenose. Peppermints have a white seam when young but lose it as they grow.

They could be L182 Starlights but it looks like a Peppermint to me. My Peppermints were also described as Starlights when I bought them.

I breed Lo71 and these look a little too young and too dark black and bright white to be L071...

I think they could well be the peppermint just not the L071, if they are then they are darker than I would expect at that size.

Though you can not fully tell what size they are from a photograph.

Lovely fish either way....

"JIM's advice is pretty much accurate also".............

Just try to get some more lovely photos a little more close up if possible...

Kind regards

The LFS also had one described as a 'peppermimt' which was similar but no white flash on the tail fin. I chose these because he had three. I am minded to go and get the third one. [img]I bouhgt two of these with my Christmas money 212011045[/img]

The picture is not good as every time I go near with the camera the mollies come up looking for food so I have to retreat a bit and then get the reflections. This little one is about 4cms.

I had 8 and now have 7, lovely fish and get better as they get older.... they can also be territorial....

check out the info on these on the forum, we have covered them a few times...

the third is worth a buy Smile
