I still advocate Rio Negro Pleco over Clown Pleco. :\
i just read that the rio negro pleco can grow to 4 inches. its only half an inch difference and it probably varies a bit...pity there isn't a species profile on here for them.

Have you asked? Anyway, if the Clown Pleco suits you that's fine. They are very similar species. Clown just hides more.


@dora. I just don't want him to get stuck with a reclusive fish that he never sees... My uncle has a Striped Raphael Catfish that only comes out like once every freakin' year. Pisses me off.

i think they are still just naturally reclusive.
maybe observe how they behave in the store and see if they are irritatingly shy? although fish always behave diferrently in the store to when they are in an established tank.

All catfish like to be under and/or in things... under rocks, or driftwood, in tunnels.
