Last week we were able to import a new yellow seam pleco belonging to the genus Baryancistrus. The fish originate from Sao Felix at the Rio Xingu. They differ from all other members of the genus from there (L18, L47, L81, L85, L177) by the almost black ground colour of the body. Almost no spots are present.

Only one of our 20 specimens - the smallest one - has very tiny white spots. Our animals are 8 - 10 cm long, but it is very likely that they grow up to a length of 25 - 30 cm like all their relatives from the Rio Xingu.

Lexicon: Baryancistrus: means "sturdy Ancistrus" referring to the body structure.

The spots could be a juvenile colour pattern seeing as it is the smallest fish.

The ones I seen for sale are about 5'' and they still had the spots and yellow fins
