pleco ID plz? pic included
hey I took a pic of my 4.5 inch pleco dorsal view. He has uncoalesced dark spots on top and bottom and exhibits a brown banding pattern i do not see on the smaller one...any idea to what species? (scientific name please)
he has at least 12 dorsal rays so i know its of the genus pterygoplichthys
going out on a limb and saying pterygoplichthys pardalis or pterygoplichthys gibbiceps but im only guessing so dont mark my words
i dont think it can be pardalis because pardalis have to have coalesced cheveron pattern on the sides and this one doesnt could b a gibbiceps...does the pattern have something to do with it? this one isnt old enough to distinguish the characteristic crest of gibbiceps
Do you have side view pics please?
thats one big and blury pic hahaha
This is the best i got, sorry for taking so long. doesnt look like a gibby but doesnt look quite like a pardalis and hes really brown
