    ...I saw mention made of Imperial Zebra and Royal Pleco.
    Without looking at full overview of Scientific and hobby literature we can begin to explore those found in aquarium stores IN South Africa, at least.

    There a number of speculatively Similar fish grouped by aquarists, and hobbyists as Royal Plecostomus.

    They are Loricariids,undoubtably closely related but not all look alike. Geographical variants, and even local subtle differences are given names and designations.

    These finer differences translate to more or less valuable to the hobby.

    As hobbyists, we in turn, affect the law of supply and demand..so we end up with EXPENSIVE and LESS EXPENSIVE Royal Plecos.
    :p

    Here' I'll post pics of a few specimens imported by The WaterZoo .
    These arrived in October.

    We got in 3 variants: L190 L191 L330


    My pics are on zumodrive...anybody knows how to upload, I thought it'll work like photobucket, but faster..apparently NOT..for me:evil::evil:

    More Queer Royal Plecs..lol

    Panaque nigrolineatus and
    Panaque cf. nigrolineatus are the names used to refer to the "REAL " Royal pleco and it's kin.

    Last TWO pics I couldn't load earlier.

    My wholesale clients SELL all fish or plants I supply them.
    SO, I dunno if any are available... that was last month!!!
    Which means I can't really offer a price if stock could be sold by now.


    pm me for any other info, if you would like to own one/ANY of these
