Got some royals on hold, but I need some expertise to ID them.
I'm guessing they're both L190 (that's what they're labeled as anyhow), let me know what you guys think.
Thanks.

The important thing to check is their bellies when they are up against the glass. Make sure they are not sunken in or concave

Not sure if they are l190 or l191. Never tried sorting out that difference

Both had flat and even bellies. Doesn't look like signs of sunken belly as far as I can tell, but I'm planning to qt and treat them, as with all my new fish.

The royal in picture #1 has a spotted pattern on it's belly, while the royal in picture #2 has uneven and randomly placed stripes on it's belly (guessing the pattern will change as it grows?)

Patterns do change as they grow. They are super slow growers. Did you buy them?

Not yet. I'm going to pick them up this week (tomorrow or Tuesday).

Went to the store earlier today and got the royals. Instead of grabbing the 2 seen the pictures above, I decided to go with 3 smaller ones (1.5"-2").
The smaller ones I chose look more like the larger royal in picture number #1.
Will post the pics of them in my collection thread, once they settle down.

It's L190 from Venezuela. They grow very fast actually. Put lots of driftwood . They eat wood also.
L27 Spcies grow very slow comes from brizil.
