Hey Pleco Lovers,
Could use a little help to ID 2 plecos. I got them from Cowis awhile back. One looks alot like a chocolate, but not so sure.
the other well......

Chocolate ?? He/she is about 6" good eater of all types of veg and proteins, farely brave and intelligent.

Pleco # 2 looks like a species I saw labeled from venezuela but with little other info. very shy, eats good on all types of food and bullies smaller fish.
I think these pics really wrecked his/her day as this fish does not like to seen let alone touched. Normally very dark black in colour tone. the mottled look is only when stressed.

Any help from some of the Pleco enthusiasts here would help alot. I have scoured Planet catfish but jsut couldnt put a finger on them.
Sorry for poor pic quality

thanks wheels. Is that ok with smaller ones like this also? He felt kinda delicate and I was worried about hurting him.

this one is so shy thats the only way I'll ever get a hot of him though.

I've done it even with my 239's and they're pretty small. However, I won't do it if they are struggling (couldn't do it with the L333's for instance) as there is no way to hold on without squeezing a bit and I don't want to do that with the smaller ones.
