Hi Bekateen,

I'll try to get a better one as soon as (s)he comes out of hiding. I do have a video in case that helps!

ID: Possible Peckoltia - Orange/brown color with dots on the nose and stripes on the body

Hi All,
This is the first time posting here and I'm trying to figure out what kind of pleco this little guy is in the picture.

It's an orange/brown color with spots on the nose and stripes on the body. It's about 2 inches right now.

Let me know if more pictures are needed for IDing
