A member of the Brazilian version (ByEvandro) is asking about these new fish he bought about a month ago and everyone's curious to know more about them...does anyone here have any info? We're really hoping it's not a painted/dyed fish...





Many more photos in this topic:

I really have nothing to contribute except my humble opinions Very Happy . To me, that fish doesn't look dyed at all. The sheen seems to be almost evenly distrubuted, and is probably enhanced by the flash. Regardless, it's a very cool fish. Looks similar to 2la's Parotocinclus maculicauda, too.

I think I may have found some info on it:

Scientific Name: Loricariidae Epactionotus aky
Found in Rio Uruguay basin, Argentina by Azpellicueta, Casciotta, Almiron, & S. Korber, 2004
Here is a link to its page on Planetcatfish.com:

I also Found a brief mention of it on Practicle Fishkeeping website. The link to it is as follows:
