PostSubject: Difference between calico and marble   Thu Jul 26, 2012 6:55 am

About 2 months ago I was forced to take a 55 gal which was a BN breeding project that my friend didn't have time for. She told me they were not regular but I figured she was optimistic. Well i'm now addicted to fancy plecos and bichirs[had 2 buy 2nd tank when I realized they are NOT community fish lol].

Well I now realize they are actually marble BN. I also have an albino BN that has a light marble pattern, is that a Calico?

marble and calico are the same thing. Commons can have mottled colours but the calicos or marbles are more orange.

Pictures really help when asking anything about identification. If you post a couple of pictues of your BNs on this thread then you will get an answer to what they are. Wink

Like Jon said if you have some pics thats always a good way to be sure about what you have . make sure its a close up of the fish and not at the other end of the tank.

I've tried and tried with no luck to take pics but either thy run and hide or it just turns out blurry but here is a pic I found with the same pattern/colors
although some have more of a light grey for the light color
