Hi albertoceronn,

Is this a different fish from the fish you showed us before, which was sold as a false zebra? The colors look different. If it's not the same fish, is it from the same source?

Thank you,
Eric

Hello Bekateen1, it is a different pleco. Both of them were sold as False Zebra Pleco but they are different, the other one has no white strips like this one. The other Pleco has orange strips and algo this one is bigger. Let me add some extra pictures.
