Parancistrus aurantiacus (Rubber Plec, Chubby Plec)
A medium-sized catfish with the unusual habit of changing its colour, from grey to gold. Fish intermediate between the two extremes are piebald, with grey and yellow patches. The fish usually only change from grey to gold, but there are reports of fish changing back.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A territorial, omnivorous suckermouth catfish. Needs an aquarium with a few good hiding places and good water quality. Eats all the usual foods, including algae wafers, softened vegetables, chopped seafood, bloodworms, etc. Intolerant of its own kind, but a good community fish when kept with midwater barbs, characins and non-aggressive cichlids.
