What is the difference between the Banded Leporinus (Leporinus affinis)and the Black Banded Leporinus (Leporinus fasciatus)? I can't find the difference (physically) between the two pictures on the forum.

Good question... I looked this up, and the best thing I can find is that Affinis has 9 stripes while Fasciatus has 10. I am not sure how reliable this is, though.
