Hello! I got these for about a fiver from a lady who got them in a trade, she said she wasn't exactly sure which BN they were, but she was told "Golden Ancistrus - not the albino one!" which wasn't to helpful with google lol. They do have red eyes I think, its hard to tell as I only ever see them in bright light.

Anyway, I'd appreciate if you all had any ideas, I'd like to get some more and make sure I am feeding them the right stuff - they don't seem to have grown any, I'd say they are stuck at about 3 inch TL, and no sign of bristles yet!

These are when I first got them, about 5 months ago:






These were taken last month in their new tank:

Thanks so much for the reply! Just common albinos then? Good to have an answer Smile For a fiver I didn't expect them to be anything very special, but they do their job at keeping my tank tiny Very Happy

I have 5 of them in there, only see three at any time outside of dinner hour, one or two have a little bit of a 5 o'clock shadow though haha

Going to give them a little longer or take better pictures of them all to get them sexed, I am sure they are all related so I don't dare breed them to each other!

yeah it kinda weirds me out haha. Will be sorting the out soon as my husband wants a few to tidy up his tank and take some pics of them. At least one is looking a bit bristly though, so its a good sign lol.
