|I'm trying to identify my plecos|
So far they seem to be pretty happy at an mbuna PH in a 125 gal tank. It was supposed to be an mbuna tank, but my wife started naming the community fish I put in there just to get the bio filter going before I put in expensive fish, so it's a community tank.
I'm pretty sure this one is
Hypancistrus sp. l-333
I was surprised to find him not eating algae that much until I read about l-333 being a carnivore. He eats the shrimp pellets I put in for the pictus cat.
This one they had labeled as a "Vampire" or something. I'm interested in knowing the classification name, though.
Edit: I think I might have figured him out. I think he might be L075 - "Rio de para pleco"
I forget what they called this one. This is a bad picture. It's kinda a grey/green ba
Found him. It was dumb luck. I found one that looked similar on google and looked up his scientific name. The 2 names were actually not very similar, but there was one of these on the same page.
L264 (Leporacanthicus joselimai)
Look that up on google images for a much better image.

Your ID's look right AFAIK, although there are other L-numbers that are similar to both L333 and L075.
The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.
