Noddy created the topic: I couldn't leave him...so i rescued another Pleco....

a colleage of mine came to me yesterday, telling me his wife had bought a Pleco for their 10Gl Overplanted, overdecorated tank.
My mate said that won't work, you want a Pleco?
I went over there and couldt see no Pleco at all, but after feeling around a bit i touched it's tail and grabbed him.
Turned out to be a common of about 20 cm or 8 ". :P
Took him, changed my tank aquascaping , and into the catfishtank he went.






He was croaking like a frog when i had him out of the water.

And this is the new aquascaping:



got to go now, but will upload the vids of it's release soon enough.
have a good day. :)

That's what is sold over here as the "Snowflake" common pleco....a color variant of H. Plecostomus sometimes found in shipments.....notice the white spots in the fins...a little different from the "common" common pleco.

Nice find!! B)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Thanks for clarifying Darth. I might have to follow up with a pic of mine for identification.

nice fish :)

It does look different to normal commons but there are few different commons and Noddy tends to go from dorsal spines to identify.

My fish is a common buts its a small common plec one that doesnt grow huge. I mean he is still about 12inces maybe bigger but its 18years old

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)
