Sorry guys, this question struct me.. What's the difference between the two
Semaprochilodus taeniurus
Semaprochilodus insignis

I can't tell the difference? :confused:

Is the coloring the only difference? The black spots only?

one with some black spots. One will grow to 12" + bigger. The other one will stay under 8". Both comes with certain degree of red in them. Individual fish will vary.
