lol Jen.. don't take my last response out of context. I'm just such a die hard Oscar fan, having had so many over several decades. Marshall is a cool Oscar, would hate to see him go, but its your call and of course I would respect any decision you come to.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Lol!! We're good Dave. I think I'm going to get myself a common pleco and see how it goes. If Marshall doesn't kill him and I feel I can keep up with the bioload I'll consider spending $100 on the pleco I want.

I am not sure, at this point, I could say goodbye to Mr. Mathers just yet.

Look the common over real well. They don't all get huge. Try to count the backfin spines. 10or less is the ones that get no bigger than 12ins. I have one about 4yrs old, might be 11ins. Even pull it out of the tank, doesn't hurt them a bit, pull up the fin and count the spines. You surely don't want one of those 2 foot beasts.

Good luck with the pleco and Marshall. There's really nothing I can add since I don't know plecos. I'd hate to see Marshall go but I trust you'll do what's best and know that I back your decision either way.
