This is possibly an L149 Ancistrus Cucuta, it's one of five small unknown Ancistrus I bought about 4 months ago. They are now about 5cms and this one is showing definate signs of being a female and another has started getting bristles so hopefully it's a male.
When compared with common BN's the distance between the end of the dorsal fin and start of the caudal is very noticable with only just enough room for the adipose fin between them.

I like her but she doesn't look anything like the Cucutas that I have. Mine have a longer body shape and much lighter coloring.

They are probably not L149's but they are nearly identical to this photo HERE . Trouble is I've never seen two photos of L149's that look the same :roll:
