Sexing L200 (Hemiancistrus Subviridis) & L128 (Hemiancistrus Sp.)maybe one for mike

all of the others which are all roughly the same size show no growth like this as can be seen below. when i bought them from Rare aquatics they were sold as 3 males and 1 female with the one pictured below as the female.....
non of the others have any growth in comparrison to the first pic which makes me think they are females....... can anyone confirm this for me please?
i dont have a pic of the 3rd but its very much like the 2 above..... ill get a pic asap.
ok now for the L128. these are slightly smaller than the L200 above. im thinking the first pic is male and the other female..... can anyone confirm this please?

How are they all doing since you got them? I really want some found some a couple days ago but didnt get them chose to get something a little different but it was costly at three times the price of a high fin

ive also got 2 very nice younger L200 (subs) in my planted tank but unfortunately they are still too small to go in with these beasts.....
they are a cracking fish and have always been one of my favorite plecs. cracking colours and dont get huge like some of the others so a group can be kept without needing a monster tank. ill probably be getting another male and female L200 and another couple of female L128 giving me a mixed group of 10 plecs. should make for a good set up i think

It's on order and should ship late next week to arrive on saturday so I'll let you know and post some pics once it's here and again once settled a bit.
I was going to do the same as you with a big group but saw this and had to have it, the group can wait cos they'll come back up again, who knows if a black one will. Just a shame I could only get the one as I'd have bought more if I could

the shop isnt huge but they have a huge selection of great fish. they have a very big tank with all the xxxxxl plecs in like panaques, luteus etc etc etc very very nice but demanding huge prices for some of them.
im looking forward to saturday but my bank balance isnt.....
