Plecho I.D Please.
2 Attachment(s)
I purchased this plecho. about six years ago. The LFS told me he was a “cherry spotted plecho” however I can not find him/her under that name anywhere. If any one can help me identify him I would greatly appreciate it. When I bought him he was only about 1 inch long and in the past six years he has only grown to about 4 inches which is a good thing. I was worried he out grow my tank but so far he hasn’t.

I have a feeling he is from sail fin family, but I‘m not sure.

Thanks for taking the time to help

Looks like a spotted Pleco?? Not 100% sure. I have a common Pleco. Yours looks like bigger and different color spots.
