Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus the Gold Spot Pleco

L-numbers are for many people simply synonyms for Loricariids. But one should remember that they have been cooked up only in 1988! L-numbers were given for species that have not been determined scientifically yet. The very first L-number, L1 (or L001, although nobody would have dreamed of hundreds of L-numbers initially) has been applied on a nice pleco that is now known under the name of Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus.
 
Once these fish were rather expensive, but this was long ago. Today they are bred in large numbers in Southeast Asia. Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus can become 25-30 cm long. Of course large specimens are eaten in Asia, but here most people prefer to keep large fish in large tanks. Glyptoperichthys joselimaianus is a peaceful species and a perfect algae eater.
 
For our customers: the animals have code 26480-L001 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
