Thanks for clearing that up, next one is the Ancistrus sp. from the Madre de Dios - is it one of the newer l-numbers from that river?

Good question, I must admit I don't know! I received it from Green Fish in Peru simply as Ancistrus sp. "Madre de Dios", so I think we have a few IDs to consider here. I haven't really looked closely into all those L-numbers given to Ancistrus types from the area, so feedback and suggestions would be most welcome.

Well I think @Acanthicus might be a good start to help with ID - will have a look too but I don't know these Ancistrus well.

Cheers,

Happily, I think we're all up-to-date with the images posted. There were a couple of IDs that we're not sure about but other than that, all done (for now)!

A massive thanks to @HaakonH for taking the time to do this - the site is richer for having these images available for the record.

A raucously loud, "halls of valhalla" cheers,

Jools & crew;

I have basically grown up with Planet Catfish. It has always been my favourite website. Looking back to when I first started experimenting with fish photography, I can see how my pictures have (luckily) improved in quality. Some of the older ones are no longer on par with my personal standard requirements. The thing is, I want my contributions to match the high standard of this entire website. Since P.C. has been such a major part of my development as a fishgeek, and a source I always recommend to fresh recruits, I need to provide the best possible material.

I am in fact very proud and very grateful to see my pictures included in the profiles. I know I have bombarded you guys to some extent, and you have done a great job by plowing through the piles! From now on there will luckily just be droplets of new material, which will hopefully still be up to required standards for P.C.

Many thanks for the cooperation so far, and Skål from the halls of Valhalla 😅🍻
