Wow, those are both really cool looking!

Very cool looking plecos. I love all the fancy plecos available, but whenever I get them I am always dissapointed because they hide all day and I rarely get the chance to enjoy them.

Neat.. I remember you posting something about 2 new plecos being classified about a month ago but these are not the same ones.

Yes, I subsequently realized that this present article was new, I just received it on Friday, so the previous were different species. Getting myself all confused here.:shake:

Could be L 015, described as Peckoltia vittata. But comon names are only common to those who use them, and may apply to many different species. What I call a cardinal tetra is often called a red neon in Europe for instance.
