I couldn't resist!!!! It was in a big chain pet store and as I was walking by their tanks, this little guy was by itself with 7 black convicts and a JD. Now, I know the typical rule is no more than 1 pleco in a tank, unless properly filtrated. So, I went against the wifey and I got him. He's in my 55 with my juvi angels and 7" sailfin pleco, but he isn't staying in it forever. It was called a spotted highfin pleco. Enjoy!! It's about 2" now.

Good excuse...couldn't resist.
Nice!
But in some time you will NOT be allowed to go to the fishstore alone! :whistle: :pinch:
Territorial issues could be a thing in the future.
But for now, congratz.

Thats very cool, I love plecs! thats why I have 5. Beware with the bigger sailfin though, mine dont like any others, even slightly bigger commons. I had a real plec brawl a while back and my sailfin had to be removed to his own space with an O and JD.

Yours may live together forever Sandra, I was just relaying what happened in one of my tanks. Of course fish fights are, or I should say were, quite common at my house. So far though, my re-arranging is working great. I still dont really like my 180 divided, but GT and RD are doing awesome. They are always having showdowns at the glass. My RD is just beginning to grow the nuchal hump and is getting the "tougher than you" attitude. I think GT is glad there is glass between them!

Yeah, he is a bit shy still so far, and no, the sailfin does not like it at all. He's being a bit of a pain. This little guy is going to go into his own tank here soon, after I rebuild the 55 that my breeding angels were in.

And no Noddy, I'm not allowed at any pet store alone, not to even grab dog food (which is why I went yesterday :P ). For the territorial issues, I ordered the cichlid stones from dfs, so i put one in there for it. So far so good. I will try to post better pics when it gets out from hiding behind my intake tube
