I just picked up this little guy yesterday for a few bucks, but I don't know what species it is.




Latin name and/or L-number please...

Thanks

hmmm not exactly sure if you ask me it looks like a Peckoltia vittata or commonly known as the Banded Peckoltia ... it has the smae shapes and pattern as this fish i mentioned just the white gaps are slightly different that a pic i have seen, although each individual fish is unique and it is possible that it is a hybrid of plecos of some sort... but that is your closest be though

damn pardon my poor english above, kind of typed that rather quickly... LOL ... but heres a link if you want to take a glimpse

it looks slightly different in the pic once again but that pic is probally a show quality one, and you guy doesnt look fully grown yet, i am sure it will go through some changes, do you think this is possibly the fish?
