Just to have and enjoy, I take any un eaten food out of the tank with a turkey baster. I'm kind of a freak out that.

@Frank that fresh water tropicals place is in Fort Myers, Fl which is where I grew up. If I order it'll most likely be for there. The only green phantoms they have right now are 2.5"-3" which means it would be swallowed rather quickly.

Yes but they do have L75 at 6 inches.

Youtube them i think they are nice.

Check out their stock list google the l numbers see witch ones you like them list them then we can find the best fit


Jen keep in mind i didnt see my gp for 5ish months...partly user error and not enough research.... forgot where it was mentioned but some of them take a loooong time to acclimate...others plecs need size to feel comfortable which takes time as they are slow growers...and furthermore some just hide thats it kapooot

Man I'm so worried I'm going to spend $100 on this baby and Marshall is going to eat it. He ate the 5 inch rainbow shark. I mean, I know they are different but if he can gobble down a 5 inch fish.
I Google the L75 and it seems everyone says something different about it, even call it something different.

So right now I'm between the L200 and the L75

Well to be honest its a possibility that even if he cant eat it he wont tolerate it ....possibility that it does work out. If we were talking a cichlid i would say hell no but we arent. Get a dw that is wide and flate but enough space that the pleco can get in but not marshall.

If you have an oscar with a tendency toward eating other fish it is a risk for sure. I would be looking at a well armored pleco with some nice spikes on it like an L114 or something along those lines.

I dont think she wants one that goes over a foot. But they are very nice


I guess we first gotta figure out what the smallest size possible would be

David/rocksor what size would you guys think would be min

some of the armored ones are also thicker and probably wouldnt be able to get swallowed....

My L114 is said to only get to be about 9.5"

I would look for at least a 6" one, not going to be cheap.
