I wish I could give you some, as I am giving them away to shops. They just breed like rabbits.

It was sold as a "Ancistrus Antennenwels" or Ancistrus Bristlenose.
Not a very helpful description.

Well, if it was here is Aus i would be saying it is def a common. However, in germany they have so many extras it is hard to tell. the thing i look for is the black dot at the base of the first bone of the dorsal fin. Generally a good starting point. Then onto more subjective things like body ratios, patterning etc.
