Lots of differences. 191 have dull dark purple or maroon coloured eyes. They have a different pattern and body colour and 191 are collected in Columbia.

I think you meant 190 and the differences show when they're older and in some cases when they're young. 27a/330 have spotted bellies and some have half spotted or fully spotted bodies. When older all 330's have spotted bellies that's the easiest way to tell them apart. Young 190's can have spotted bellies and it will change to stripes as they get older.

It's easy to tell 191 from 190 or 27a/330 but its not always easy to tell 190 from 27a/330 unless they are lager/older fish

Haha thanks for clarifying! I was easily confused. Sometimes so hard to tell.
