do they generally act the same? I mean I know every p has their own personality, but every species act a certain way for the most part.
I was wondering if they are the same shape, do they develop the blackmask?
I think the lake and river are of different shape....could be wrong.

I believe they generally act the same, both being elongated although the pinkie ones seem a little sleeker, both very fast and ambush hunters.

-i pretty sure the pingke one is the river varient and it has red on its throat and has a pointy snout

-the black masked one is the lake varient and thay are relativly darker and have a more rounded snout

if i could chose i would go with the black mask

As far as i know both are very aggressive but i prefer the black mask cause it looks better...
...i don't think there are 2 different forms of this fish, i believe is the same fish with different colours, maybe Nathan can answer your question...!

i just got an elong, think mine is the river one.

the person who sold it to me said it was a black mask, but i didnt care, this thing tried to bite me thru the glass


it does have some black markings behind the gill and some of the face, but look more silverish than black (body)
