    Very informative! I'd also add to your rep but I don't think I can. Thumbs up though!

    Thanks Mandy glad it helped!
    To get back to you on the Super Red I believe it is a different scientific name. I believe it is a different pleco. I think it can be pretty territorial. I believe they get 5.9 inches so a 20 gallon is recommended.

    L201-Hypancistrus sp. (Orinoco Angel Pleco) 3.9 inches 20 gallon high. Good for community tanks. It will most likely fight with its own species so caves are STRONGLY recommended.
    L226-Panaque changae (Iguitos tiger pleco) 4.7 inches 20 gallon high Very peaceful fish. If kept with other of it species you have to have a lot of hiding places.

    Ancistrus sp. (Super Red)- 5.9 inch 20 gallon high cannot be kept in to small of space with own species.
    Panaque need wood that is the majority of their diet. They still are omnivore so provide them with a balanced diet as well. They also produce large amounts of sawdust. That is why they need a bigger tank so it does not compromise wood-water quality.
    Hypancistrus are omnivores but more prefer meatier foods.
    Ancistrus are omnivores and prefer a balanced diet.
    Peckoltia are omnivores and prefer a balanced diet.
    Parotoclus jumbo have to be in groups of 3 bare minimum.
    This is intended to help you get started. Also the food is generalized still look up what food you want to give them. I hope this helps. This is thanks to all the great folks on planetcatfish and plecoplant. Also thanks to ScottishFish and Mucky fish for reminding me of 2.

    Thank you for answering my question, I have just bought 6 juveniles, and they are currently in quarantine. One seems to be AWOL, I couldn't find one this evening. I am hoping I get a breeding pair or two. They will go into a 55g high.

    Thanks again, next time I'll start my own post.
    Mucky

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...

    I realize that I am new to the party, and this is an older thread, but I would also add the L450 to this list. Hypancistrus, beautiful fish. Thanx.
