new striped pleco species named

For all you pleco fanatics who love the Zebra Pleco but can't afford $200+ for one fish...here's yet another new striped species that has been named.

The "L" numbers are added to "new" loricariid species when they are discovered, awaiting full scientific description and naming (assuming it is actually a new species). There are I think over 300 L numbers now. Exploration of previously-unfished creeks in Amazonia are bringing to light new species almost every day.

Now that's a nice looking fish! At only 4" tops, this is something I'm going to start recommending to people just dying to have clown loaches in too-small tanks. In fact, I want to track down one of these myself...
