Newest Family members.... L243's

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

decided to jump on the L number band wagon today and purchased 4 L243's Wormline Peckoltia, couldn't sex them the way the net described so i'm hoping i have at least 1 male & 1 female, but i was told it looked like 3 females, 1 male.

Have to set up a tank for them now :alien:

The wormlines are really nice fish. Wish I still had my pair.

Just to clear things up, aren't L135 wormlines?

They aren't the easiest to breed. Larry Vines has some really interesting information regarding these and other catfish in his book 'Loricariidae: The Tricks of the Trade'

Thanks guys.

Adam, not sure mate - i bought them as L243 and then i found a couple of sites referencing that they are Wormline's. Thanks for the links. :egrin:

I'll find my camera on the weekend and take some happy snaps and hopefully we'll come to the same agreement :lol: Bloody L's

There are more of these guys getting around so just keep your ears and eyes peeled 8O:lol:
