How long have you had him and has he always been colored the way he is now?

I am at a loss but will do some checking with some folks I know.

It looks like the body of a , but with an albino head or something like that. Not sure if that is a birth defect or hybrid strain that is being bread, or if it's just an entirely different pleco all together . In any event, you might try posting that pic in the as they might be able to help more. And of course let us know if they tell you .

Wow, that's pretty interesting. Looked up that fish on planetcatfish and it seems that it actually will change from gold to the brown color. . Nice find there SHPEPoser.

I actually read that only males have that gold color. And it starts all over the body and eventually goes away in captivity.
