Its a bristle nose I thinkAquaphobia said:Hm, a true hybrid? Being different species I wonder if this is sterile?
Yeah I don't think it isslayer5590 said:Looks like a bristlenose to me. Hybrids are quite rare in the pleco world.
That's what I though but the guy I got it from for free was like no my gold spot sailfin and rubber lip had babies together hahaha I was like whatever you say champ hahaDoubleDutch said:those species definitely won't hybridizem This is a female BN to me
I am not a cichlid-expert but those are both Pseudotropheus (so related) in my opinion.fissh said:Very cool looking fish. Hybreds do exist in most fish, just because you haven't seen it, or haven't heard of it doesn't mean it can't happen! I saw a PindannI (mbuna) breed with a blue peacock, I thought this couldn't happen until I grew the offspring, which tuned out to be sterile. I can't say the offspring were pretty, they were just stange looking.
I'm gonna have to agree with youDoubleDutch said:I am not a cichlid-expert but those are both Pseudotropheus (so related) in my opinion.
There are hybridized synodonthis, gouramis.
The mentioned plecs are related like cats amd rabbits (not). The plec in the pic looks like a nice female Ancistrus cf cirrhosis
Sorry but you're not correct :fissh said:They're both fish out of the same lake, and they're both cichlids, but that's as far as being related goes. They're about as related as a rubberlip and a gold spot pleco.
