Hey guys i recently bought three SAE from petco under the name siamese flying fox. They were only $2.50, but having done quite a bit of research i recognized them for true Siamese algae eaters. I felt like i got an awesome deal. But after having them for a month i am not too sure. I'll upload some pics. The main reason i think they may be false SAE is because there is a hint of a yellow band running across over the black band and the top fin is not 100% the same color but looks like it may have some yellow in it. Although the black stripe does go all the way to the end of the tail. Haha maybe i have been staring at them for too long. I really would like a second or third opinion. Thanks so much everyone!!

It looks like a true SAE to me but I'm no expert. If you can check the mouth area on yours, true SAE will have only one set of barbells while the flying Fox has 2 sets.
