My best guess would be is, Pic 1 and 3 are L002 and pic 2 is an L333 (yellow)

not a lot of colour in your pics... makes it a harder job then it should be... 


1. panaquolus

2. hypan

3. panaquolus male 


if you want a decent id provide decent pictures :)  close ups from above preferably taken in an icecream container or similar with just enough water to cover it and maybe use a decent camera too... :)

Agree with aquacouple on IDs and also Johnno on poor photo quality but as for body damage to L002 in pic one you'll have to be more specific about how/when this occurred. Was it after a water change (check ammonia/nitrate levels), drop in temp changes or was he/she hanging beside the heater when it began heating water? What other fish are in tank with it - territory scuffle? But looks possibly like bacterial infection maybe?? Are other Ls displaying this as well?
