This is a shot of an unknown plecostomus already sized 27 cm housed
in a 300 liter tank along with 3 Astronotus ocellatus and one
(partly visible in the top left corner of the lower photo).
Any help to identify this fish will be appreciated.
It was initially
thought that this fish is
Glycopterichthys gibbiceps (L 083), however the pattern on the
two fishes didn't seem the same although quite similar. Many thanks
to Andreas Iliopoulos and George Sirpis for suggesting
that this is most probably Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus
("white spot - Glycopterichthys"; L 001). It should be noted
that L 022 (Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus; "Amazonas
pleco) looks even closer to the fish in question. The fish is
found in Brazil (Rio Tocantins) and will reach a final adult length
of over 40 cm.
