This youtube video shows a fish in the genus Leporacanthicus from Venezuela. It is uncertain what species.

TITLE YOUR POST IMAGINATIVELY PLEASE!!!

PLEASE DO NOT title your post with headings like "ID this pleco please...", "What is this?", "My New Catfish..." and "Help me ID this fish..." - for us moderators this becomes confusing and difficult to refer back to after a while.

So, what we REALLY want are unique titles like "ID this brown pleco", "ID this foot long silver catfish", "What is this shark catfish really?", or even "$3.99 brown fish" if that's all you have. That kind of thing really helps even if you can't get down to the ideal of "What is this Ancistrus" or so on.

Basically, try and give us some colour, size and/or background info. in your title

I bought a fish sold as a Butterfly Pleco, Hong Kong Pleco or Coldwater pleco
It's likely your fish isn't a catfish - See http://www.planetcatfish.com/forum/view ... hp?t=11324, these fish are often for sale in the same tanks as goldfish or other coldwater species.

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO THE SITE (IMAGES, INFO OR CASH)?
See this page.

Cheers,
