PostSubject: Please help me ID my pleco!    Mon Sep 22, 2014 2:23 am

I have a pleco (sold to me as a dwarf albino Cory but def a pleco! S\He is white with some yellow on the nose and darker white spots all over, short finned. No bristles on the face I can see yet as think Is too young to identify either way, I have a good picture but I cant seem to find an obvious way to upload?

Please help, hes in my first ever batch of fish and have spent 3 days on the internet not finding anything quite like it! Hoping a trained eye can tell me its a bristlenose for sure/ type and commonness of morph but I need to know how to upload Smile

I'm not sure its even a BN at another glance as he has dark eyes and albino species have red right?

Hi there,

the easiest way to post pics is to host them on another site then put the link in your post.

there are lots of hosting websites around (photobucket, imageshack etc.)

they will allow you to upload your pic and then give you a link to paste into the topic and then it should all work.

Sounds like it might be an L144. basically an albino looking fish with black/dark blue eyes.

a pic will confirm Smile

of course it could be a larger pleco too, albino sailfin or something...

Will try to get a picture up this evening! I think you might be right about it being an L144 except I did a quick search this morning and a lot of posts seem adamant about them being yellow and not having the spots! There was something about the original l144 on this forum but id be far too lucky to get such a rare find for £2.99! But of all the images ive looked at not one matches my unique guy! I wondered if the spots were an age thing though? Pleco is 2.5 inches at the moment

Finally should be able to follow this link to a secondary post I made! I had to wait 7 days before I could post external links as a new member!

that is an albino bristlenose.

there are a few variations of the albino bristlenose, the most common is more yellow and had red/pink patches on it. There are others that are more white or spotty.
