I have a pair of peppermint L181's and the male is pretty much at the 3" mark and the famale at the 4" mark. what size do these guys usually need to be to breed and what size do they reach? any other info about them would also be appreciated.

Have you got any idea as to old your might be? L180, L181,L182 all take quite a while to become sexually mature
and can be quite stubborn about the spawning event. Good luck thunder_chunky.

I have no idea how old they are. I will try to contact the person i bought them from to see if he knows, the males bristles are pretty well developed and the female is larger and a little rounder

Mine are 12 months old and I would estimate circ 4 inch each
I reckon I have a male and female
Both have bristles but one only around the mouth and the other is up the snout and lots more of them

High thunder_chunky , your female doesn't look to far of a good size to get started spawning - the male looks
like he could with a little more size , I've also been told that the females prefer the males to be larger
than them selves, but hey you never know - you could be 1 of the lucky ones.
cheers J
