Possibly A. longifilis based on the length of the adipose-fin base?

Cake or death?

Hi Matt,

thanks. I already saw this criteria in the description of portellus, but I really don't see the big difference looking at the pictures...

Here is a picture of my grown single longifilis (?) female for comparison. Same species?

edit: don't know if this picture is available for you, but this is a specimen from the same import via Glaser: https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/395149_439987082717563_2078834492_n.png

Hmm tricky and guess these come in mixed? Will see if Silurus can help.

I am tending towards A. longifilis based on what I can see (for all of the fish illustrated).  A photograph of the view from the front would help greatly.

Thanks a lot.

I'll do my best for a shot with a front view!
