First topic message reminder :

Ok I went Aj today to just look around and took some pics. My girlfriend loves catfish but I don't have good luck with them so I steer clear. Anyways she hates plecos and I love them. She went to animal jungle today and got me two rhino plecos and really got into the ones she saw. So here are the ones she liked.







This one I forgot to take a picture of the tag but it was like almost $300. Nice looking pleco.
Pardon the horrible pics they were snapped off my phone .

It has a Pimelodidae look to it and reminds me of Sorubim lima, but the exaggerated duckbill is throwing me off. That is all the guessing I'm going to do. As we speak, others are giving their opinions and I'll post back.

Two feet! So, you didn't buy it? Laughing
LOL No way Not yet. Adding that new fish made me realize I need a lot bigger tanks. Laughing

Sorubimichthys = means Sorubim-type fish (looks like a Sorubim);
planiceps = means "flat head."

So, it's perfect!
Very Happy
