What would be the question?
The blue phantom is L 128 Hemiancistrus, gets about 7-8 inches long, nice shade of bluish gray with lighter spots.
Prefers slightly acidic waters.

L200 is the Green phantom, AKA lemon drop, lemon spot.
L200 is actually 2 different fish that look nearly the same.
One is a Hemiancistrus and may simply be a green form of L128. The other is a Baryancistrus.

Of the 2 types of L200 the Hemiacistrus green phantom is a bit brighter green/yellow. The Baryancistrus type is darker and gets about 6 inches,
compared to the Hemiancistrus at about 7-8.
The main way to tell the green Hemi from a green Bary is that the Dorsal fin is connected to the adipose fin in the Bary.
The green phantom Bary is a little bit more tolerant of water out of its range.

Well, thanks, i do appreciate it, however my focus is with the Hypancistrus genera of plecos.
I'm fairly well versed with the other pleco types, but its the dwarf types that i concentrate on.
