Hi All,

Dorad shown at the recent SAF show as Platydoras dentatus which is, as I am aware, a synomyn of P.costatus.
Any ideas?, as it does not look like P.armulatus.

P. armatulus shows broad, cream colour stripes. This more like the P. costatus pictures that I've seen.

It looks more like P. hancockii to me based on the dark markings in the creamy lateral markings, and the head shape.
