Re: White Spotted Pleco ID

Hi

Agree with the ID given by Jools. You will be able to sex it with around 12 cm-15 cm.

Re: Which pleco is this

Hi Agree with Eric, it is either pardalis or disjunctivus. Even if you don't manage to get a good picture, have a look at the pattern on the abdomen. Is it spotted or covered in blotches, it's pardalis, is it wormlined it's more likely disjunctivus. Still...., there are pardalis around with a wormli...

Re: Gibbiceps?

Hi, this is either a pardalis or disjunctivus, tending to say pardalis though. Also think this is a great example of how easy the "groups" in Pterygoplichthys are to distinguish from each other. Pattern and colouration don't help at all in this case, because they are not typical for either of the me...

Re: Possible True L144

Hi It can not be the true L 144, since this variety is linked to the area it was found in first. Also it is pretty much impossible that it is the same species as L 144. There is a pattern visible on the fins, that makes me assume they will not keep this colour but turn into brownish specimens with t...

Re: Can you ID these Plecs

Hi Check L 66 and L 333 for comparison, surely a Hypancistrus and one of the wormline-complex too. They are similar in their requirements, so the actual variety/l-number isn't a big matter. Make sure they are not getting mixed with any other "similar looking" or "surely the same species" specimens t...

Re: hello! please new ID....

It's P. gibbiceps, simply not as common as they normally are, but still a gibbiceps.
P. weberi looks different in this age.

Re: Need more help with my columbian sharks please

Hi

Despite that blue gravel I can't spot anything that would make me thoughtful. They look good to me. If you feed them pellets, make sure to water them first, so they can swell before they are eaten. Otherwise you might risk bloat and blockage.

Re: Leporacanthicus ___? Sp or joselimai

Hi I would not finally put a name on them. Based on the greyish colour they match L. joseliami better than L 263, but both can vary of course and the colour might change after a while. L 263 is rarely being imported on purpose and is therefore not as common as L. joselimai. Groups need to be put tog...

Re: Reproductive biology of Rineloricaria uracantha

Good morning A similar behaviour can be observed in what is called "L 10a". When using these triangular "shrimp-cave-houses" consisting of +/-10 tubes, they always use the second or third row from below. And I am going with Jools that it's about avoiding the eggs getting covered in debris, and there...

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.

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: 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...
