Re: Tips for new pleco breeding project thanks.

How about Peckoltia compta or, if that's a bit too tricky, whatever species of Hypancistrus takes your fancy?

Re: Fishes near Iquitos

The pattern is different, but to me, they look very similar morphologically just from the pics posted. That's a decent-sized Batrochoglanis!

Re: S.Negriventris and S.Contracta are unhappy, what can I do better?

The fish don't sound unhappy. With these species, if they're happy you won't see them much unless in large shoals. They will come out for food and the rest of the time they will hide. You've done well finding 3 S. contractus - there are usually only a few found per 100 of the other species. Feel fre...

Re: Please identify this catfish

I'd say Rineloricaria parva. Tank is plenty big enough although you may wish to consider a wide open space for it with a few hiding spaces at its borders.

HTH,

Re: What is this guy?

I'd say it's a stunted (oversized eye), male, captive-bred L066. Aphanotorulus doesn't have this colour pattern, has a lower head and isn't patterned on the upper cheek and AFAIK, isn't in Oz.

Just noting that I've added the new species, but the PDF is behind a paywall, so I can't add more data.

Re: L200a vs L200b taxonomy

They belong to two different genera because they have characteristics that place them in different genera - bear in mind these can be features you can see (like the dorsal fin being joined to the back) or others you can't (like the length of the intestine). There is more in the species profiles. Jools

Re: Pleco Identification

Wasn't aware of this, no! 20221109_181645.jpg I am not certain, as your fish maybe has a bit of growing to do, but I'm leaning towards you fish being the new species. Check out Mikrogeophagus maculicauda and Mikrogeophagus altispinosus . Cheers, Jools PS Normal pl*co service can now resume. :-)
