    Default Unidentified black and yellow striped pleco

    I was at my LFS today that usually has a large selection of L number plecos so are pretty knowledgeable well they had a unidentified striped pleco they didn't know what type and neither did their importer so I got him pretty cheap and put him in a tank that gets all types of food until I can figure out what he is. It is hard to see in the picture but he does have a lyre tail

    I was able to get an in tank photo he doesn't seem shy at all even with plenty of hiding places and caves he is staying out in the open =)

    Beautiful pleco! Have you tried finding it on Planet Catfish http://www.planetcatfish.com/ ? Also, are those red ramshorn snails in the photo?

    Michael, I believe the snails are yellow mystery snails.

    I posted on monsterfishkeepers and planetcatfish so far it looks like it is most likely a L425 but may be a L460 either way I got it at a steal of a price

    They are ivory mystery snails like plant lady said I have probably 150-200 of them
