a search for "chocolate pleco", and "albino chocolate pleco" both come up with similar pictures, but still dont give me a scientific name. poo.
Looks like Pterygoplichthys Scrophus That I have, except the photo is possibly a albino variant or cross.
Is said that L numbers for plecos, were not given until 1980's and that many species were discovered long before this time and were already identified by scientific term.
The two nodes protruding from nose lead me to believe the afore mentioned name often called Rhino Pleco.
Mine is only bout four inches, but I expect it to grow to around ten inches.
Is fairly good alage eater at juvenile stage from my observation's . Time will tell if this remains to be, and or if the specimen I have remains plant friendly.
