Hi melano,

They don't look exactly like what I think they should, but I suspect that's Panaqolus albomaculatus, the mustard spot pleco.

Cheers, Eric

They are not very eager and few people try. I've had a group for 6 years. Almost spawned (trapped for days) on several occasions, but never any eggs.
