Default Calvus question.

Hello.
Can anyone tell me if the calvus in this video is Black Congo White Pearl or Ink Fin? In my opinion it's a BCWP, but I saw a YouTube vid with some similar Calvus and the guy called them Ink Fin. In any case this one is my favorite off all my Calvus. I'm looking to buy more, anyone know where?

Thanks
Phil

Definitely not "Inkfin" in either video.

They are black calvus and possibly BCWP. I'm good with BCWP for now

The first calvus in your video looks like a regular black calvus to me, not ink fin. It is very similar to mine and I have over a dozen black calvus. My black calvus range in color from almost white with dark bars and contrasting spots to very black all over. Mine change depending on lighting and mood and how they rank in pecking order.
