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

Post by PicoPleco »

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

Hi PicoPleco,

Maybe L387 (if orange bodied) or L205.

Can you also get a good side view photo of the fish? (Good meaning showing whole body, in focus, and perpendicular to body, without being at a skewed angle).

Cheers, Eric

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!
