Looks like L260 to me. M or F? The body looks like F but I see some whiskers. Either way a very nice L260 :)

I also think its a male, but belly is been like that for many months, always in the cave too. some people think its a female. do you the male will get this fat? Also its pusing 4inch. do L260 grow this big??

Its just a well fed pleco, I have little doubt other wise. If you fast it for a while, you should see the belly go down, since its obviously full bellied, by looking at even the stomach from the underside. The always in caves just further supports the female argument. I rarely see my females in caves, and if they go in, its for a very short period of time.

I'd say its a male and just well fed give him like a week of very light feeding and see how his belly is, plecos have crazy disgestive systems

Shawn,
It's a nice looking male. To me it looks more like an L411 Monte Dourado though.

That's wt I think too, cos he is pushing 4inch, still have very nice patterns, my other 260 fully grown male is smaller and started to lose the paterns. This guy still have very bright patern and wide body.
