Greetings. The fish appears to be C. pulcher
- Variant 2. The one without the "curly-Q" dorsal. C. schwartzi
do not show the light anterior dorsal spine. These are becoming more readily available in the hobby, both in the U.S. and in the U.K..
The other fish is C. trilineatus
. It is common to find this fish labeled as C. jullii
or False julii - on both sides of the pond. True C. julii
are rarely seen in the hobby and unless the precise location of the collecting point is known, it is all but impossible, even with an expert eye, to correctly ID C. julii
. Additionally, although there is a high degree of variation within individual species, the variation among C. trilineatus
may be the strongest example.
Hope this helps. - Frank
