Very beautifull pleco but NOT a L260 a.k.a. Queen Arabesque.Your pleco is a L066 Hypancistrus sp. from Rio Xingu and Rio Tocantis and it can reach the 14cm!
It's an impressive and attractive fish!

Sweet new pleco, Gord

I have to agree with Jim: I don't think that's a QA - it's either a L066 or L333... Do you know where it was collected (if wild-caught)?
Care is the same though - make sure he gets his meaty foods, as Hypancistrus are primarily carnivorous. Also, pleco's from this genus will be most active and least shy when kept in a little group.

btw: if this is the "poor man's zebra pleco", then I don't mind being a poor man at all

Thanks guys
I was wondering what he actually was but the manager at the lfs said that it came from their Florida farm as a L260 ... regardless I still like the little guy
