      New pleco species recently discovered by The Field Museum in Chicago from the Amazon. Any thoughts of these guys if they get in the hobby?

      The tan one is called Ancistrus Yutajae. The greenish one is called Ancistrus Kellerae. And the spotted one is called Ancistus Leoni.

      Cool plecos thanks for letting us know about them
      I love the bristle noses they have, they do seem a little shorter than bristle nose plecos tho, but maybe both male and female and will have same shorter sized bristles.
      I really like the first one, it seems like an albino/ luecistic cross between a rubber lip, bristle nose

      Hmmm, Wonder if those are males and if females are bristleless? They look like they could VERY easily be confused with the dime a dozen common and golden bristlenose ancistrus.

      Clearly whoever decided it's the ugliest fish ever never saw many of the goldfish species, or Parrots.
