Anybody know what this is?
So I was browsing Practical Fishkeeping today, and I found a random picture of a Pleco. I think it looks awesome, so I wanted to know if anyone knew the species. Here's a link to the picture:

I believe that is a Sturisoma, though not sure which exact species; 17 are listed by Planet Catfish. You could go through the many photos of Sturisoma on Planet Catfish and may find it.
PlanetCatfish • Cat-eLog • Thumbnails of species

Odd that PFK didn't identify it; that is a very good periodical.

That's for the resources, Byron :) I know, it was odd. Especially since it was an article about Apistogramma. I believe they were saying how A. Elizabethae needs a very low pH, and then the catfish. Thanks Byron :)

It is some sort of whiptail, I don't think farawella [sp. sorry] see if they specify it.
