Mustard Spot Plec & Para Plec

I emailed round my LFSs to ask if they can get any of the rarer types of bristlenose catfish in. One replied saying they couldn't but could get 'mustard spot plecs' and 'para plecs'. Anyone have any good info or photos of these?
I am wanting to breed a couple of types of catfish. So far I have bred BNs so don't want anything too difficult to move onto next.

Assuming they are giving you the correct common names they should look like this.

Mustard Spot (LDA031)



Para (L075)



I am always a little leery places selling the rarer plecs without L#s listed because of how similar some species look. Just off the top of my head I know L240, L201 and LDA031 would all probably look like the same fish to someone who is not into plecos, so be careful and make sure the fish looks right.

As far as breeding goes, the biggest concern in my mind is diet. Obviously your plecs will not spawn without proper diet and most of the rarer plecs require a more meaty diet, as opposed to BN plecs who eat mostly algae.

Both sell for about the same from what I have seen, but I prefer the L075s coloring if I was getting one.
