    Try looking under L-182 or L-183 for info on the pleco; looks like one of those, likely L-183 IMO. Starlight pleco is the common name usually encountered, never heard of "gold seal" before. If it's 6cm or larger it's most likely a female. Mature male Ancistrus all have "bristles" on their nose to some degree, females usually don't.

    thanks todnbecka i'll look that up :). hi gogreen the shop had them down as flame gourami but the next time i whent in they had them down as red gourami, they were in the same tank as honey gourami in the shop and my friend has 2 in with his 2 honey gourami and he says they have been fine together. mine have grown a bit faster than the blues (they really like thier food)one of them has even took food out of my hand when i was putting it in the tank. hi diggly yeah thats an RTS he looks alot smaller in the pic but he has still got alot of growing to do.

    Common names are so confusing :) Where you bought the Pleco should have an order sheet showing what they received. Now if you can get somebody to look that name up for you. the scientific name would get you a better chance of ID'ing it. I wondered if maybe it was supposed to be "gold seam" instead of gold seal. there are several variations and color intensitys on the gold seam plecos.
      is an excellent research tool for plecs and other fish of that type.
