Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Very cool looking plecos. I love all the fancy plecos available, but whenever I get them I am always dissapointed because they hide all day and I rarely get the chance to enjoy them.

Yes, I subsequently realized that this present article was new, I just received it on Friday, so the previous were different species. Getting myself all confused here.

Could be L 015, described as Peckoltia vittata. But comon names are only common to those who use them, and may apply to many different species. What I call a cardinal tetra is often called a red neon in Europe for instance.
