Wild Caught, 10-11cm
The sunshine pleco (Scobinancistrus aureatus) is, without a doubt, one of the more vibrant members of the Loricariidae family. These fish look similar to other spotted pleco species at first glance. However, their distinct appearance becomes more evident the larger the fish gets.
This pleco goes by many names. You might see it called a “goldie” or by its simple L-number of L014. Either way, the most defining trait is the yellow coloration.
This fish originates from Rio Xingu in Brazil. It occupies oxygenated waterways, sticking to the bottom of the water column to scavenge for food.
