Please help! What kind of pleco??

Post by Ddana123 »

Recently got from LFS where he was advertised as a royal pleco, however he is much lighter in color. Closest image I see online is a platinum royal. Would love to know your thoughts. L027 or l190 maybe?? Not sure.

Thanks,
Dylan

Hi,

the eye shows some red colour, hence I am putting my money on Panaque nigrolineatus.
I think it will darken during the next time.

cheers, Daniel
