I found exactly one reference to a "gem pleco" online which said it was a Peckoltia snethlageae, aka L-141 or L-251 (not sure why it has two different L-numbers).

Is this your fish?

I found another reference -- "ancistrinie gem pleco L-215" -- http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-250877.html

Which on planetcatfish.com lists as ... Peckoltia snethlageae

:hmm3grin2orange:

Plecos and their crazy L numbers ....
