If you only have 1 than he'd be MUCH happier in a group of three. Is he doing good on the snails?

55 Gallon:1 Baby Bristlienose,1 Swordtail, 1 Bala Shark, 2 Common Pleco, 2 Clown Loaches, 2 angel fish,3 (look a like) rasbora Tetra's, 4 Black Skirt Tetra's, 4 Long-finned Gold Zebra Danios, 4 Cardinal Jumbo Tetra's,6 Red Eye Tetra's, 7 neon tetra's
10 Gallon Nano Reef:1 Chocolate Starfish, many snails...Work is in progress...err

Ahh. Right choice! :D Make sure it has lots of friends. :)

Regarding plecos not going well with discus...Actually, if the pleco is fed well, it will not want to feed on other tankmates. Depending on the pleco, if you give it the variety of foods it requires, it will not search elsewhere. For example, with us humans, we will not eat food on the ground or in the garbage, unless we cannot find any other source of food. So for most herbivorous plecos or otto, feed them algae discs, blanched zuchini (corgette), frozen skinned peas, fish flakes, etc.

Yay, Fiona! You have a clown loach called "Tigger", as do I ! I've got to get Tigger some buddies (more clown loaches).

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

If your tank is large(about 55 gallons), 3 can be kept. They are fish that love to socialize and you'll need to get 2 more(depending on the tank space).

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
