It looks to small to be an L182, how big is it and does it normally have that colouration Question

L071 is the same as a L181 and a L249... Smile

the more i keep looking the more its a L181 rather than a L180,

The reason for the three L No's are that each one was caught in a different location L071 from the Rio Tapajos, L 181 from the Rio Tefe and L249 from the Rio Trombetas, it is believed they are all the same species.

Just to add another option for your fish the L213 also comes from Rio Tapajos.

I don't know if L213's are imported to the UK but it could be easily mixed into a batch of L071's.

PostSubject: L071/ peppermint L numbers so confusing ..lol   Thu Nov 17, 2011 11:36 am

so I was right, Wayne I breed them and your welcome to a female, I have a male and female breeder on sale on facebook...

they do go alot darker as they mature and get older, mine have not grown too big and are about two year old now... they colour lovely jet back when fully settled, although the females tend to keep the lighter grey colour some what also..
