Number 3 seems to be a tail of L 174. I've got 4 of those plecos and their tails looks like that.

Good point inia, the owner of this "zebra" should supply a picture of the whole fish to McEve so that she can verify that it is indeed a zebra or run the risk of being disqualified.

Never mind Mindy, there will be another one :D But don't forget to vote all of you!

About #3.... I'm not sure how stern I should be about it... I've already got the owner running scared once...... I think I better trust him on this one ;)

:lol:

I'm pretty sure it is indeed a Zebra though :wink:

Myself I'm more intrigued by #7. I got three pictures of this fish, and in all of them it looks like the tail either is split in three, no damage, just three equal parts, or that it has a longer spine in the middle. Wish I got a side view of it :D Matbe the owner could post a side view of it after the comp is finished?

I must admit, I'm rather concerned about the self esteem of zebra number 4. I heard that not getting any votes in a zebra tail competition is on par with being "Britian" in the eurovision song contest!! :lol: :wink:
