I added 2 of these very nice
"small spotted" Golden Nugget Pleco to my 750L Amazon tank in
December 2003. The label on the tank in the shop said that they are
Baryancistrus sp. L018. I found that
they were also called L085. There is also the "large dotted" Golden
Nugget that is called L177. More info on them can be found in
fast fact sheet.
beauties are a bit shy, but once they grow larger they should come
out in the open more often. I haven't seen them eating, but I
regularly drop some algae tablets especially for them and the
Sturisoma aureum in the aquarium after dark.
