Re: Can I keep L397 with other pleco or fish?

The plecos could go together with no trouble, but I think the corys would like a cooler tank.

I keep both L397 and L387 at 27-29⁰C. They could be kept a little cooler.

Cheers, Eric

Re: All-Aquarium Catfish Convention 2022

Hi TTA,

I'm sorry for your loss. That hurts, especially when we can know it was our action that led to the problem. I told myself long ago that I will always make mistakes, no matter how long I'm at this. Just learn and move on.

See you soon,
Eric

Wow, that's not good but it could have been so much worse. Take care Viktor, and good luck.

Re: What is this??? Sold as L007

L201 is a possibility, but (in my opinion) your fish looks a little stocky to be L201, so L471 is possible. I've been told by scientists that L201 and Hypancistrus contradens are genetically indistinguishable (like L333 and L066). I don't know if L471 was tested too. Maybe they're like people - with...

Re: Petsmart Clown Plecos or something else

It still looks like Panaqolus to me. But regarding P. maccus vs. L448, it's not about photo quality as much as it is age. Let them grow to see how their color patterns develop, particularly on the face.

Re: L168 feeding

Hi emanuel, I've got L052, which scientifically are considered to be the same species as L168 - Dekeyseria picta . I have my breeding group in a tank with very high flow, so conventional vegetable feedings don't go well (the plant parts just swirl around in the tank). I feed mine various brands of p...

Everyone attending the Saturday Banquet, make sure to wear your favorite Hawaiian shirt! Or kilt? Jools Kilts are okay as long as they're purchased at Hilo Hattie's ! :)) See you soon! Cheers, Eric P.S., if kilts were an Irish phenomenon, I would have said buy them at "Hil O'Hatties!" =))

Re: Petsmart Clown Plecos or something else

We recently added two “clown” plecos to our tank. They look to be two different species. The one with the more patterned snout is ~50mm total length while the more cleanly striped one is about ~40mm total length. Are either of these actually Panaqolus maccus? Hi aliceinwl. Welcome to PlanetCatfish!...

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

Came home from work today to discover dad had abandoned the fry and he was outside the cave. So I released him from the fry basket and I then released the fry from the cave into the basket. I was interested in the color pattern these are showing around the head within 24 hours of hatching. Not like ...

Re: Imported as Ancistrus bodenhameri from Petra Aqua. Now spawned!

They hatched! Six days from eggs to hatching (no more than 6.5 days, depending on when eggs were laid, since eggs weren't there at 7am last Thursday but were there by 9pm that evening). I'd share pics of fry, but dad is doing his darnedest to block my camera view. Edit. Moved dad's cave for easier v...
