Description: L-114 is among the most extraordinary new imports of recent years. Strangely adults are imported more frequently than juveniles. The color of Leopard cactus pleco is pale to dark brown with numerous orregular black blotches on the body and fins. The underside is grey-yellow. L-114 catfish has long, comblike teeth. Its teeth are little in number, but powerful and large. Xingu cactus suckercats have very sharp spines covering their body; handling them with bare hands is not advised! Because they are so quarrelsome among themselves, a large aquarium is required if more than one specimen is to be kept.

Males have elongated odontodes on their pectoral spines during the spawning season, and the males have a slimmer body shape compared to the females. The expected life span for this fish is 12 years.
