Hypostomus sp. L137

I purchased this pl*co from a local “pet shop” 12 months ago, it was sold as a Blue-Eyed pleco, it did have pale-blue eyes at the time of purchase.

It was very thin, when purchased with a hollow stomach, I think the “pet shop” was feeding it on flake, it could also have been starved for export to the UK, which is a common practice for exoporting fish.

It’s been feed Algae Wafers, Courgette, Cucumber, Spinach, Kale, Prawns and Bloodworm, it’s grown and put on weight, but it’s lost it’s pale-blue eyes.
