I bought these 3 yrs ago as "pitbull plecos". I posted then at planet catfish and they were identified as parotocinlus pernambuco. I've found them to be great cleaners! I seem to have 2 perpetually gravid females, and I don't see them often. This one was posing so I took the opportunity. Anyone else have any experience with these?

Now that you ask??? /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />
I just took it for granted that's what it was when told by the folks at planetcatfish. I went back and looked through the threads and don't see any reference to description. Maybe a variant of p. recife?? Mats?

I´ve kept these and bought them as P sp. Pernambuco. Found them to be easy to keep but never bred them (didn´t make an effort either).
