Re: Plecos ID?

Heho

The grey one is Parancistrus aff. aurantiacus from Rio Tocantins, it's often sold as L 56, but is something completely different. See here if interested: https://www.ig-bssw.org/again-and-again-l-56/?lang=en

Agree on the other one being L 501.

cheers

Re: Pleco ID

Hi

I'm leaning towards Peckoltia lineola too, looks like one and is also the most likely having the origin in mind.

Re: What is a Golden Zebra Plecostomus?

Hi

Thats a Hypancistrus from Xingu, like L 333 etc., not a debilittera-type.

cheers, Daniel

Re: Identify Pleco

Im with P. pardalis, because of the dorsal ray count, the head morphology, the pattern, the colouration and the body morphology.

Re: Which Cactus pleco do I have

Hi L 114 are from Rio Demini. The spots on the head are bigger than they are in P. leopardus. L 600 is not an official L-Number, but a trade name. The species is described as P. leopardus and should be called this name, nothing else. It's from the Rio Branco-drainagge, often collected in Rio Rupunun...

Re: L350 maximum size

He Haakon

The biggest specimen I have seen so far is the one pictured in the "Bede Atlas L 1 - L 400", can't recall how big it looks, I don't have the book here. But I know you have it, so you might wanna check.

40 cm seems too much I agree. They seem to be mature with 15-20 cm.

Re: ID Peru Cory

Hi

what makes you so sure about this being C. bilineatus, Eric?
I have not collected it in the north of Bolivia yet, not in the Madre de Dios region at least, which I would assume to be the only place where this fish could be from if it is C. bilineatus and from Peru.

Re: "New Ranger" or "Mini Ranger" plecos?

Heho

The fish in the link looks like a juvenile P. punctatus. But both species are very similar and also variable in pattern and colouration. The only good characteristic is the buccal papilla, which is subdivided in punctatus, but not in weberi.
