Siamese Algae Eater or Flying Fox

While I wait for water to boil for some wood I got, I wanted to find out if I bought a couple of Flying Foxes or a Siamese Algae Eater. I know they can be mistaken for each other and sometimes purposely done so. I saw these fish labeled "Flying Foxes" but noticed they didnt look anything like them. They were missing the gold/yellow stripe. Here is a pick of the two I have. Maybe I got a lucky find?

Could be true SAE.... hard to tell with them so pale. Here is a good link for IDing.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Thats them. I got lucky I guess, I was able to find true SAE. Not bad at 4.99 a piece. They'll do great with my algae trouble :)
