Yesterday I purchased what was labeled as a "hi-Fin Leopard Pleco." I took it home, let it get settled in the tank and since I've not previously had a pleco before.. I'd like to know if this fish was labeled incorrectly, and if anybody knows what it is?
I purchased it from "Absolutely Fish" in NJ. They have only 1 location that I know about (there could be others I am unaware of) but with 9,000 gallons of tanks.... well it's safe to say they stock a lot of fish!
They actually have a Pleco that is roughly 1 foot long, and probably weighs a good 2-3 lbs. Just guessing by eye.. but it's really neat to see such a big sucker! Pun intended.
i paid rm 1 for those pleco.very normal here grows to about 3 feet better find a pond once it get's too big
here's what they look like once nearly fully grown.the first is the albino of the species the second is the one in your tank
