Baryancistrus beggini
Blue Panaque (L239)
蓝丝绒琵琶
Despite its misleading trade name, the Blue Fin 'Panaque is not part of the genus Panaque - it has little or nothing in common with these large, wood-eating catfishes. The question to which this species or genus belongs was done in 2009, when ichthyologist Lujan, Arce & Armbruster this species scientifically described as Baryancistrus beggini. But the last word seems not talked about yet, since not everyone seems convinced that the Blue Fin 'Panaque' actually belongs to that family. Can be very aggressive against other armor catfish, other Finnish Blue in particular. This species is fairly territorial namely: finding and retaining caves, suitable for building a nest, is usually the stumbling block. More than a Blue Fin 'Panaque "in a small tank could result in injury or death of one or more fish, although in a large tank with many decorations they could reside together.
