I really like the white edges on the fins of L183 Plecos... Cool

They have the white trim when they are young. They lose it as they get older, but still look good.

The L183's are beautiful.  

For those who are not familiar with this species, it's important to note that many Ancistrus species have a dark overall color base with small white dots.  L183 can be positively identified from other Ancistrus by its one hard, and nine soft, dorsal rays.
