Clown Pleco id pls

Post by jodilynn »

Had this guy for a while. Tank is being taken down due to issues with the other inhabitants so I decided to take a few pics.
Darkest I have EVER seen this fish. Normally it is yellowish brown with darker stripes???
(*) Thank you (*)

Agree, Panaqolus maccus female. That big, that fat, no caudal peduncle odontodes? Female almost guaranteed.

Really nice looking fish, Jodilynn.

Cheers, Eric
