L018, Baryancistrus xanthellus is also known as a Golden Nugget pleco. Gold Nuggets are soft water species that also prefer higher temperatures and are ideal tank mates in general. This includes many tetras, discus, and rams. Avoid other bottom feeders, mainly plecos, as these are very territorial and can even become vicious in defense of what they decide is their territory.
There are at least three types of Gold Nuggets in the aquarium trade; L018 (also known as L085), L-081 and L177. These are separate species, or subspecies of several species, as determined by several ichthyologists. the main difference between these fish is that the L081 has small dots, while the L018(L085) has medium-sized dots. The L177 has largest dots.
