Thanx for sharing, I'm on the fence whether they are L002 or L015... flip a coin? cheers

Guess you could tell if they were Tigers if they look like they are furry?

Bottom picture looks a lot like A "Candy Stripe" or Clown Pleco (Panaque maccus) to me.

L002's or Tigers are normally a little darker but it could be that the ones in your pictures are just a bit stressed hence their lighter appearance.

Either way both a nice additions to any tank.

cheers

defo not maccas lines to thick and evenly placed,

candy stripe is the l015 as to what i thought it was, they where sold as l002 but am quite sure there the 15's as the nose patten is the biggest clue, just wondered what people thought,

I'd say the 2 in the top pic look like m/f. As for L# it's hard to tell with the stress colours. First thought was p. maccas but judging by the fry in the last pic I was going to go with L002. But then again a decent pic of the adults would help.

hummm, well i was basing it on these pic, all the nose stripes of l002 seem thin and l15 thick and the plecos i have you can just make out the 3 black lines on the front of the face, when compared to the fish below.

Sorry but the top pics do make it a little hard to tell but yes if the adults have the thicker stripes on the nose that would probably ID them as L015. But as I said we only have the pics you provided to go by. If the fish are settled in and are no longer showing stress patterning then maybe you mite treat usto some more pics? Wink
