    Looks like a ranger Pleco. Saw the same fish labeled as such in Y618 and Aquatic Avenue few days back.

    Re: Help ID pleco

    Just to check if anyone has kept these plecos before and can share/confirm what their eventual colors and patterns become once grown to adult size? From what i've been reading online it seems they change their look alot as they grow, even at every 1cm stage of growth, the stripes apparently turn into spots.

    Closest ID i could find so far is Pterygoplichthys weberi : http://www.planetcatfish.com/common/...species_id=860 (the photos show the juvenile patterns vs adult patterns, super different).

    I'm not sure if still in the tank, few days ago was looking for it but I can't find him. Later I go back find again. But from what I read , is very difficult to kill a pleco
