I agree with bigcatman - there's a few quids worth there as they are usually at least £80 each at that size.

I got 6 of these after I will put up a better photo
It's very hard to say what they are they have white whiskers
But still don't quite look like the real thing

Think they're usually sold as salt n pepper synos.
Hybrids but nice looking ones.

There are lots of hybrid synos being bred in the Czech Republic and of course they come up with pretty names to sell them under.
They are nice looking fish but you'll never find out their true lineage as its probably a closely guarded secret. They'll have the same care requirements as any other synos
