Re: What is a pleco?

You are wrong, but only because I'm being pernickety. :-) The term pleco is most accurately used to describe a handful of sub-families within the Loricariidae, so Pleco does not equal Loricariidae. Almost exclusively, today Pleco = Hypostominae . One also wouldn't call a Chiloglanis a pleco. Some ol...

Re: Blue eyed Ancistrus

L088 is the "usual" one. Don't think it's that, there is an Ancistrus marketed as an LDA number that I can't for the life of me remember that looks like this too. If they are wc, where from?

Re: Corydoras aeneus?

Nice work Eric. ack210, if you're up for it, I'd like to add the picture to the species profile - the third picture in there is nearly 20 years old and I think yours is more representative of the species. Can let me know here or by PM your thoughts? Will need your full name for the image credit/copy...

Yes, the ID is good. Really nice picture BTW - fins are in perfect position.

Re: Trichomycterus punctatus info

Well, if it's from BelowWater, they'll likely have good info on where it came from - you could ask?. This might help with ID, but, as Daniel said, these are not easy species to ID as there is a tricky combination of similar-looking species and little amalgamated information on them.

Re: Astroblepus in India?

Fixed! Which only left A. pholeter with a weird position on the map, fixed that too (using the new override system) and, I think for the first time ever, all our Astroblepus are now in the right continent!

Re: Venezeula Black

Great link, thanks! Here's a nearly 20 year old picture you took of me doing similar with that species. :-) Jools BTW, the commercially bred form (might have been Don's fish, don't know, came from catcon) that found their way to the UK were then traded (for Myxocyprinus ) to eastern european commerc...

Re: Trichomycterus punctatus info

I'd say the first thing you need to do is post a picture of them so we can confirm it is even close to Trichomycterus punctulatus. Note spelling, it's another small clue it's been sold without a huge regard to ID...

Makes sense. M. polli and M. batesi are mixed up in the literature of old.

Re: Juvenile Syno ID

Synodontis nigrita has smaller, irregularly shaped spots and is greyish/brown. The pictured fish has some spots more like Synodontis ocellifer which is grey. The slightly blunter head shape indicates captive / farm raised and/or hybridisation involved in the pictured fish.

Hope that helps,

Re: L263 or L264

These are easier to tell apart in the aquarium, one is browish and the other is greyish. Just on the two photos above it looks like one of each.
