Recently bought this little fella in a job lot of fish, I'm thinking it might be a L009, Smoky Peckoltia?
Could anyone confirm this or suggest another likely candidate? Plus is it a male or female.
Thanks in advance for your kind assistance! ;)

I use stainless steel screws to "screw" through slices of cucumber or zucchini to weight them down.That is one that has been stripped of the cucumber and I haven't re-loaded yet!
See the bottom in the first picture where there is just the rind of the cucumber still attached to the screw. :)

Yeah the screws work great! Just make sure they are stainless steel to avoid them rusting.
You can use cucumber raw, but pop zucchini or small chunks of pumpkin or broccoli in the microwave for a few seconds to "blanch" them, then let them cool before "screwing" them and pop them in your tank. If they've not been eaten within 24 hours remove them.
All my bottom feeders, Clown Loaches, Corys, Long Nose Whiptails and Bristlenoses and quite a few of the other fish love the fresh veg. So do my Mystery Snails in some of my other tanks. :)
