My new L104(?)

Post by Dantu »

I picked these two up a week ago at my LFS labeled as Clown Plecos. After browsing the L numbers I'm not so sure that they are both the same species, any thoughts?

The one to the left I'd say is Panaque maccus (L104], the fish inside the pipe looks like it may be LDA068.

Thanks for the ID assist. They are now happily hiding on driftwood in my display tank. So if by chance these were male and female, I would have a hybrid situation on my hands if they bred?

From the best of my understanding, these overlap in distribution, which makes it unlikely that they would be breeding.

This is actually a good photo to see the differences between the two spp side by side (or above and below as it were).

This is a good pic to show the differences, maybe we could use it? :-)
