Hello all-
I was lucky enough to find a blue-eyed panaque at a local fish store, which was a turn-in by owner. (he/she has already eaten twice since being put into my tank at home today, poor thing is very skinny right now.) I think it's a female but can't tell for sure, also I understand that there are two different types of blue eyed panaque.
mine measures at least 8" long. (it is hiding at the back of the tank right now, and we didn't measure it when we first got it home tonight.)
I have some pictures but the camera quality is very bad, so hope these will help to ID this find.
Thank you very much in advance for any help that you can give me - I appreciate it!
Stephanie

Hi Galatea,

First of all welcome to the SC forums and we hope you enjoy it here.
Looks like Panaque cochliodon. Have a look here

Hello & Thanks for the link- I am sure you are right about it being a cochliodon - no white anywhere on this one.
I was able to measure it, about 10" from nose to tip of tail, so I assume an older one? (All of my other plecos are smaller varieties - 6" and under.)
Now, I just hope to sex it, but regardless am very happy to have found it and enjoy just watching it. :)
