Nice. You got one of the small L147 from Charles? I got 4 bigger ones and I love these guys. I think I'm slowly being converted from Panaque to Peckoltia as they seem more outgoing and of course, is much easier to manage food wise.

Gary,

Yeah i ended up getting one of the smaller guys, although the bigger ones looked just as great.I like the two patterns these guys have to them.Actually looking at him/her right now in the open and they settled in nicely.Feeding is up next for them.The L129 is a nice one as well, but i have only seen them once today as he/she was right next to the L46 under the stump this morning.I tell you once i get more space, theres others to add:bigsmile: Charles told me you picked up a small group,so he sold me on these as well.Love the phantoms , beautiful colours and perfect size! Gotta wait it out or iam gonna overload my system here.

Yep, I picked up 4 L147's, and some wild ancistrus because I like how they have lots of bristles. Haven't had time to take any pics as I've been super busy lately, but will get some up of the L147 as they look great now that they've been in the tank.

I was told it was a Gold Spot
I stand corrected<G>

My other Bristlenoses have much more pronounces bristles.
This one may be a female. They tend to have fewer bristles. And the domesticated ones tend to have less bristles than wild caught ones. I have both and the wc ones look like monsters.

Time for an update of my list of plecos I'l keeping :)

Pseudacanthicus Sp.
- L320 (I think) - group of 6 of these
- L282 (5 or 6 from 5 to 7")
- L24 (3 of them my FAVES!, 2 @ 10", 1 @ 14")
- L273 (5 ranging from 3-7")
- LDA105 (5 ranging in size from 3" to 8")
- L600 (Few small ones @ 2")
- L25 (one lone one eyed scarlet @ 7" names Winkie)

Hypancistrus Sp.
- LDA-05 (NOT L136, they are different fish, less spots, but still small spots and grow much larger), I have been growing 8-9 of these for a year now. They grow really slow then all of a sudden spurt up. Some are now 3" and hopefully able to spawn in another year.
- L333 (Porto Do Moz variant) These are the yellow/black ones, 20 of them.
- L411 (10 at 3")

Others
- Super Red Ancistrus (10 x German Strain)
- L37 (a bunch)

Thats quite the list,some exotic species as well.Is there one setup or several setups? or do u have some separate? You seem to like your Pseudacanthicus huh:) Good luck with the breeding of these plecos.

Many are in species tanks, but I also recently shut down a number of tanks to save on some hydro bills, so currently the L24, LDA105, L273, L282 and L25 are all together. The L24's are the largest by far! Quite a nice tank to watch, always some plecos out and about. Also about 30 odd cores in the tank. Tank is 300 gallons and 10' x 2'.
