So I guess there is an actual difference to flying foxes and siamese algae eaters.
Honestly do not know which one I have. I THINK they're SAE after seeing some photos of the very slight differences, but I'm not positive.
The ones I have aren't "colorful" like flying foxes are. Also, the black stripe goes to the tail in, but kind of fades out in to it. It's not solid coloring in to the tail fin. That could just be from the stress of being moved though.
Also, the mouth area from what I could see isn't a sucker looking type of mouth that the flying foxes seem to have.
I dunno... the fish are super tiny so maybe once they get bigger, they'll color up and the difference will be obvious.
But for now, I'm gonna call them SAEs lol.
They seem to be doing well though. 2 of them were hanging out with eachother.
New cories are doing well too. Were very eager when I fed the tank this morning.
