Looks like you accidentally posted this three times. If you can't delete the threads, a mod will. It's also in the wrong forum. Should be in the What is my catfish forum.

Also, I would read the sticky in that forum, particularly with regard to naming your thread. Add some more info into the text too, such as what you bought the fish as, and how much it cost.

PLEASE DO NOT title your post with headings like "ID this pleco please...", "What is this?", "My New Catfish..." and "Help me ID this fish..." - for us moderators this becomes confusing and difficult to refer back to after a while.

So, what we REALLY want are unique titles like "ID this brown pleco", "ID this foot long silver catfish", "What is this shark catfish really?", or even "$3.99 brown fish" if that's all you have. That kind of thing really helps even if you can't get down to the ideal of "What is this Ancistrus" or so on.

Basically, try and give us some colour, size and/or background info. in your title

I don't think it's L270. That fish is rarer than people realise. Hypancistrus debilittera or maybe Hypancistrus sp(l401) is more likely, I think.
