Yeah I was reading about how confusing it was to really tell the true identity so I just gave up ha..
It looked similar to P. labiatus from what I could tell. But I'm sure the tail and head play a part in telling which species it actually is. Until I get better pictures I don't know if I can be sure until someone else who knows more tells me. It looks just like this one almost identically except lighter color and black spots.
And yeah I like the plants and that they help water quality but at the same time he doesn't like the light and only comes out really when the lights off so I'm debating about whether to take the plants out or not and just get fake plants for him to hide in and perch on.
