Rusty pl*co

One of my two rusty pl*cs (Hypostomus cochliodon) having his food. Unlike most plecos, rusties need to be provided with food during day time because they are diurnal. They are also no longer commonly available as it is now illegal to remove them from their natural habitat in Brazil and, at this time, they have not yet been bred in home aquaria.
