    So im starting to wonder if both of my plecos are yellow king tigers or not. Anyone lend a hand in the ID?

    Unless you got a latin name for a yellow king tiger, I'm not going to be able to help

    Close enough. Well it's definitely looking like a hypancistrus from the Rio Xingu (enjoy that will it lasts, most of those will be extinct before 2020)
    But if it's L333 or L401 I'm not entirely sure. A few more pics would help. Here's the best overview of hypancistrus I've seen so far.

    I went through that, and going off of what they say my fish sound like the L-333 still. I think i have two males. As they are always in hiding, have spikes along their front two fins, and are staying relatively small. One thing i do not see, if they are males, is the hairy looking tails....

    Perhaps they're not adult yet.

    Almost fully grown. Tricky to sex from here but I'd vote on L333 myself.

    Lots of pictures I see people take them out and put them in a container and take a picture from above. Would that be something I should try? To aid in the process of sexing them? I would like to try and breed them, since I got my Bolivian rams able to breed, I'd like a little more challenge.

    I think you can do fine by yourself. You got the fish and you can observe.

    Adult males develope teeth-like odontodes around the head and the pectoral fins. Viewed from above the female looks much more massive than the male.

    Easiest way of sexing even half-grown ones is to provide enough caves. The fish entering and staying in the holes are only the males.
