Few snaps of my L27c (Panaque sp. cf. nigrolineatus`xingu`)

Not the best fish to have in a planted tank, he likes to aquascape more than me.

Last night he decided he didn’t like where the food was so he pushed it up the tank about 6”, covering over one of the slate caves the Wild Caught Bristlenose inhabit, he had to dig himself back out.

Great panaque Johnny. These are one of my favourite catfish, i used to own 3 at once, but they were back in my Dennerle plant keeping days.

Thanks :) We have 3 too, I have a baby L190 and a Juvi L190 too :D :D The spotted one is a L177 Golden Nugget, one of the smaller ones, he'll reach 7-8" hopefully.

Not at all expensive the L190 baby was £15, the L177 Nugget was £25, the L27C was £60(absolute bargain, normally for this size they are near a £100)
