We, the people - that is, Liz and Deb of CVAS and Yann and Martin of PC *lol* - believe your specimen to be Peckoltia species L147. That is the best ID so far, and today's viewing will confirm.

One thing I had hoped for was a good photo of the mouth but in the above sequence (last pic) the mouth is covered! That's okay - we'll see it today and all will be made clear. ThumbsUp

He had it up until today *lol* Laughing
Liz and I picked up the pleco today at around noon. It will go in her 150.

It's a gorgeous catfish in excellent condition, which Anomala has kept for about five years.

Good information Deb. Water Lettuce doesn't sound like a good choice for me considering the overflow of plants I have. One jumbled mess that is.

Not a jumbled mess at all, but a thriving habitat!

All you need is to park a nice 55-gal on that stand you have, and you can start a new setup.... Wink

I'm thinking at least a 75 gallon when the timing is right...pay off some bills and find homes for a couple of cats.

Absolutely NOT a jumbled mess! It's primarily the layout of the plants and the number of them (many!) which allows you to keep that many fish in that size tank, IMO. That is a look I admire and as Liz pointed out on the day it's something that I do myself! Laughing

I agree with you on the water lettuce, though - right now you don't really need it.
