    It's 6 inches right now. They will top out around 7 to 8 inches.

    Nice pleco! Very beautiful.
    So this is the Hemiancistrus subviridis green phantom rather than the Baryancistrus demantoides green phantom?

    Really the only difference is one is a hi fin the other is not. Too me they look almost the same.

    Yeah, they look the same to me too..... apparently B. demantoides is less common.

    Yeah I know and they inhabit the same region too.

    Yeah... there's a minute difference. I wouldn't be surprised if the two species were found to be the same.
