Hey everyone, I got this pleco from the 2013 Florida Aquariun Fish Expo.  His bag was unlabelled but I think it's an L201.  I am not as savvy on the L#s as I'd like to be but am learning : )

Do you agree on L201 or should I hit the drawing boards again?

Also you can see in the 2nd pic that his tummy is pretty sunken in.  I am guessing it's been close to a week since his last meal, so I do hope he fattens up soon.  He is currently housed in a 29g tank with 3 BNs, and an array of community fish.

About to do some serious care research but any advice would be appreciated!

I'd say spot on with the L201. Such a cute little fish. I miss mine but there is no way they would have made it with the big oscars floating around

Well I can say he is still alive today and still appears to be acting normal as far as I can tell (not too familiar with the behaviors of this particular pleco.) He hides on the big driftwood log mostly. I see him change his position periodically. Last night he came off the driftwood and roamed the tank some. I turned off the lights and fed some wafers. I do not see him actively searching for food like the BNs do. Anyone know how aggresive of eaters these guys are?

I generally feed the tank:

~green beans in the early AM
~a variety of flakes (Cobalt, Marineland, Wardley, and TetraMinCrisps) and sinking pellets (earthworm sticks, shrimp pellets, spirulina sticks, and tropical sticks) in the afternoon
~ Just started to feed algae wafers overnight.
