Possible Hemiancistrus cerrado? Need help with ID

Post by Gcalberto »

So my possible hemiancistrus cerrado seems to be healthy and eating. He is not shy at all!

My questions are, can anyone get a positive ID on this pleco? Should I feed him a more carnivore or herbivore diet? From the odontodes, it looks like it's a fully grown male. Is that correct?

The seller told me it was collected in rio Araguaia river. Although i'd take that with a grain of salt, he was definitely collected in Brazil.

Below are some photos and a video I made from him.
