I tried and then found a video just suits this guy better. Had to lure him away from his bff with food hence the mess in the water. He really is so cute! Seems to grow very slow but very quirky which I like.


Oh a list eh? I'd like a list. Yes Chesh, I know what I just did asking for that mwhahaha. I made a video just for this thread so he can type up all his fav plecos .

OK I can't find my old notes. I'll have to work from memory, so I'm probably missing a whole bunch. I definitely am since I'm only going to list small-medium plecos I've actually seen for sale in like the last year. In no order, because when I started to make some sort of order it was taking too long! Same reason the links are mostly one site, in spite of me knowing multiple profiles. Trying to keep them less than 6 inches, although some of the whiptails might be longer.

Zebra pleco
L199
Angelicus pleco
Small spot
Queen Arabesque
Orinoco polka-dot
L450
Colombian zebra
Medusa bristlenose
Spotted medusa bristlenose
Mustard spot
Flash
Tiger
Clown
Mega clown
Gold stripe
Leopard frog
Brown dot
Big spot
Prince tiger
King tiger
L072
Flounder
Spotted orange seam
Ghost
Flyer
Hi fin green phantom
LDA074
Gold marble bristlenose
L144-different fish than the one usually sold as this
Bristlenose
Starlight bristlenose/White seam bristlenose
Giant whiptail
Royal whiptail
Common whiptail
Red lizard whiptail
Haseman's whiptail
Hi dorsal whiptail
Oto
Zebra oto
Pitbull
Giant oto
Paarotocinclus sp 3
Twig catfish
Marbled whiptail
Robocop catfish
Rubbernose/Bulldog

I suspect you chose 1/3 of these because of the ridiculous names. Robocop catfish? lol And omg who wouldn't want a Pitbull in the cat(fish) family?
Great list BWG

That is one heck of a list BWG. I'm loving some of the common names these have. I'd be tempted to get the robocop cat just so I can tell everyone who sees it what its called. Haha
