Re: ID my plec

Reminds me of Peckoltia lujani, but, as said, better / more pictures would help.

Just caught up on all the posts Eric, great reading and super envious! You're going to have a lot of fun puzzles to work with when you get home. Safe travels!

Re: L240 size

I agree it's not L240, for the reasons well described above. Worth also being clear about SL Vs TL in this discussion. 24cm TL seems about right, but not 24cm SL. I would say about 6-8 years to get to this size in ideal conditions based on L. heterodon I kept for 6 years and got to 6" SL. Jools

Re: Cranoglanis multiradiatus

Thanks HH, so I think I can about make out the humeral process from @dmcat 's excellent pics. If for no other reason than to start a trend, it would be good to get a full shot of the anal fins so we could show/count them too.



Cheers,

Quite large, 18cm Sl or thereabouts - distinctive when viewed from above.

Rineloricaria sp`loreto` ? Collected these myself near where you are. Scary to think that was 22 years ago...

Re: Cranoglanis multiradiatus

That is very cool indeed. I really don't know much about these fishes at all, so great to see them. I hope to add the pictures to the site, but we just moved house a couple of weeks ago, so a bit short on time for now. I will do it eventually, and, again, great to see the fish. Anyone (@Silurus) kno...

Many Corys look like this in the wild, there is an iNaturalist link above with data on where collected etc.

Re: Is this Corydoras esperanzae

Here's the pic:

I'm not 100% sure how to tell Corydoras(ln9) concolor and Corydoras(ln9) esperanzae apart so for me it could be either until we know more. Maybe @Karsten S can comment?

Re: Fishes near Iquitos

Look great, do you have IDs for all of them? I see 4 (assuming 2 spp. of Ancistrus) that I am not sure of.
