P. Maccus?

Post by Casscats »

And with the new Chaetostoma, there's also a panaqolus included, I think is probably maccus but many look the same to me in this genus lol

Little young fish, but cute.

I think these will turn out to be L 448. At that size P. maccus have very distinct lines or stripes on their head.

Little guy came out with the lights on. Shocked. I thought I'd never see him again after releasing him into the blackwater tank.
