Some Brits, Welsh and Irish folks would be appreciated too, if you've got the social capital. :))

Re: Ancistrus parasite

I have never seen that before. Are you sure it's a parasite and not a tumor or other growth?

Re: Pleco size

Tank size should allow good growth. Maybe add different foods?

How big is its tank? What are you feeding it? How often do you feed it?

Re: Catfish noodling scores another victim

Thank you Eric! Not so much a noodling victim but slip and fall. Could happen to anyone regardless of the way a catfish is procured. To me rings of the proverbial running with scissors. Don't run with catfish ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, haha... You're welcome Viktor. To clarify, the kid h...

It could well be a mistake. The fishes in that picture are a carbon copy of the one's from @TedsFishRoom. I would think it is ...

Re: Cf. Cirrhosis ?

Hi MissNoodle, Their appearance is consistent with common BNs ( Ancistrus cf_cirrhosus ), but there are similar brown bristlenoses too. If your fish are captive bred, they are most likely common BNs. If they are wild caught, it's a bit of a crap shoot in my opinion, unless you have some collecting l...

Hi, to me it looks rather like a hybrid (likely with R. lanceolata , possibly also other species), this species is quite commonly crossed with the red whiptails as the females of R. lanceolata lay significantly more eggs, juveniles are very often nevertheless quite red but darken with age.
