Baryancistrus cf. xanthellus (L081) may be the same species as the standard Gold Nugget Pleco (L018) or may represent a very similar undescribed species. Aside from having finer spotting, this pleco is identical to L018 Gold Nuggets. They are omnivores that relish algae and plant matter but will still need protein in the form of frozen foods or sinking pellets. This is a mid-sized species of pleco that reaches around 8" in maximum length.
These specimens are juveniles around 3" long.
