Re: L104 Clown Pleco - 120 litre (29g US)

This is the fish with the odd color pattern. It looks more like a Peckoltia to me. Or if Panaqolus, then one with a very unique and beautiful color pattern.

What do others think? @Acanthicus?

Re: L104 Clown Pleco - 120 litre (29g US)

They probably are L104 or at least one of the clown plecos, but it's particularly that area behind the eyes that looks atypical to me.

Re: L104 Clown Pleco - 120 litre (29g US)

Glad you got them safely. Do you have whole body photos yet? I must confess the facial coloration pattern in this pic looks a little peculiar for L104.

Cheers,

Thanks
Follow-up: I have confirmed it will be up for 3 days, so if you're unavailable at the time of the live broadcast, you can still watch it.

Re: Plants for high flow pleco breeding tank

Hi Emily,

Myself, I'm not much of a planted tank person, but I do have some Crypts in a highflow tank. The plants are potted, and some are emergent (others are under water). The emergent plants do much better than the submerged plants.

Good luck, Eric

Re: WTB Female L201's

Hi Coryclown,

Two years ago, I was at the GSAS meeting in Seattle and sold some L201 to Dean Tweeddale. I know he got his breeding, so he may have some females. If you attend the GSAS meetings, or if you're friends with him on Facebook, check in with him.

Good luck,
Eric

Re: Jeremy Basch speaks on woodcats Saturday Dec 5 6pm PST (ONLINE)

I expect it will be recorded and available for a limited time (a couple days or maybe a week), after which it will be taken down. Immediately after the presentation and Q&A ends, the software takes a little while to convert, so I believe there also will a brief downtime on the day of the talk after ...

Re: Couple new super red ancistrus

I dont mind either way, theyre adorable. Ultimately, that's all that matters with regards to you keeping the fish. But then, what would you consider their colouration? If someone is really looking for true "super reds," I suspect these would be not top grade. But to your first point, that's not imp...

Re: Catfish fry grow better in total darkness

Not to knock the study (good paper), but aquaculture studies have looked at this in the past. Agreed, there's no need to insult people who are learning something new to them, even if it's not new to others, but I felt the same as you here - this didn't seem to be an epiphany moment. That said, whil...

The other strain is what we call the "czech super red": they are red, but also show brown markings, their red is less intense. Hi Daniel, Funny you should mention the Czech super reds. One of my LFS in California just received a shipment from Petra Aqua, which included a group of super-red BNs. The...

Re: Sick pleco. What's going on?

Now, for the last 3 days, he's been breathing rapidly, his streamers are melting at the tips, and he won't eat. He's even swimming to the surface to gulp some air on occasion. What happened? Honestly, this sounds like ammonia burn to me. I appreciate that you say all other fish seem fine, but the f...

Re: Orange Zebra Otocinclus Hypoptopoma sp. Peru “Orange”

Hi jd_7655,

I've never kept those, but I had some robocop Nannoptopoma. They arrived with hollow stomachs and a spot of ich. They died within days. Haven't tried again, but maybe someday.
