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.

PostSubject: L071 peppermint catfish or another type may be?   Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:59 pm

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][/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.
