    Trying to stock my 20 gallon long and came across these two. What's the difference and which is better or "preferred?"

    Lambchop (rasbora espei) are smaller and more orange. Regular harlequin rasbora has less body color but sharper black marking. Really depends on what your preference is. lFS tend to mislabel them anyway

    Agreed with the above. What do you prefer?
    What other fish do you want?

    I'll just get whichever of the two in my LFS that I see, if I see both there then I'll go with Harlequins.
