Hi guys,
Been to the LFS and the guy showed me some hold spot plecs, I think he said it's about £3 a peice. Just wanting more info on these guys.

Are there any other plecs these are misIDed with?
What PH is ideal?
What's their diet?

Would it be okay with the BN's Wink Considering the adult male is 6" and they're about 2"

and of course...
Anyone bred them?

Just done a quick bit of reading...apparently they get to 30cm long - which is a no go area for me.

But I heard theres a dwarf species?

gold spots are big fish. I have not heard of a dwarf type, there are lots of smaller plecos but they are generally much more expenisive!

I know this is quite old, but whilst checking out websites I FOUND A REPUTABLE WEB PAGE SHOWING....

LOO1 orange spot plecs 5cm £4.00
LOO1 orange spot plecs 5cm
Enlarge

YOU WILL GET 1 X ORANGE SPOT PLEC 5CM

Panaque albomaculatus (LDA31, Orange Spot Plec , LDA 31, Mustard Spot Plec, Orange Spot Plec )
Dark grey body with orange-white spots on the body and fins.
The size of the spots varies, with "large spot" and "small spot" forms being found. Males become very bristly,
especially along the sides of the flanks between the pectoral fins and tail.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A medium-sized Panaque that requires warm, well oxygenated water, preferably soft and slightly acidic. Because of the elevated temperatures this species needs to do well, take care not to overstock the aquarium and provide supplementary water circulation and aeration as required.

In common with other members of the genus, this species feeds extensively on wood. Bogwood should always be provided in the aquarium. In addition, vegetables such as courgette, carrot, potato and cucumber should be provided on a regular basis. Algae-based pellets and wafers are a useful supplement. Bloodworms and other meaty foods are also required, this species being somewhat more omnivorous than is typical for the genus. Doesn't eat much algae.

Territorial, but can be maintained in groups provided the fish are not overcrowded and kept in a roomy tank with adequate hiding places.
Family Group: L Numbers
Distribution South America: Ecuador and Peru
Temperature 26-30 C
Size 13 cm
Water Parameters Soft and acidic water preferred
Water PH 6.0-7.5
Diet Special Needs
Sociability Peaceful
Schooling Fish No
Care Level Easy
Water Chemistry Adaptable

So as 13cm's is not that large is this the dwarf type you were looking for...
