sorry to tell you this but no. they are infact two different species. where as commons, albinos and marbles are the same species but different color variations.

actually yes they can. everyone thought it was impossible untill a guy from sydney in australia has successfully bred a longfin common female with a peppermint male. Theres a lot of speculation on this but ive been told by a reliable source here that he has actually SEEN them and they are longfin peppermints however their fins are not as long. about 3/4 length. weird eh!

HAHA , one says no ,one says yes. By rights the answer should be "no", they are 2 different species of Ancistrus as kfenk has mentioned - not that I'm calling you a liar or anything of the sort zane and I'll happily retract my opinion when some of these Pepp longfins come on the market.
As Munter once said: I'll believe it when I see said beastie.
cheers J
