    Santa got this LDA33 for me at the Atlanta auction.  Sorry for the poor quality photo, but I had to take it when I had the chance!  Isn't she beautiful?  ;D Santa, you're the best! :-*

    That's a pleco, right? What is its name? Isn't it the "vampire" pleco? (Or not, lol, sorry if I confused it with some other pleco). And yes, it is so beautiful! How large does it grow? I wish I could have a beautiful pleco, but I can't in my 30g. tank. Well, one day :) when I get that huge thank I dream about! Very beautiful fish Gunnie !!!

    That is the scientific number it was given.  Some folks call it a snowball pleco.  Some sources say it gets 10 inches, others say a foot.  If you want a pleco, look into the bristlenoses for your tank.  I particularly like the bristlenose sometimes called medusa.  Dino has some beautiful bristlenoses and breeds them.  I think the l number is 107.  Go to the link below to learn more about my baby, then stay on that site and go to Cat-eLog type in L107 and it should take you right to it.   ;)

    When plecos are first imported they are given a number and then an L before that number to indicate family(Loricariidae ). eventually they are given a common name but alot of people continue to use the L and number to positively ID a fish. Kind of like using the scientific name for fish.
