Got my red marble BN plecos today

All three are very healthy and active, and fat! Two were a bit bigger and darker in color, one was smaller and lighter in color, so I put a lighter and darker together in one tank and the other one in another tank. Hopefully I have a pair. Here are a couple pics.

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Thanks guys. The red marble, from the first time I saw one, was my favorite. Also known as calico. So when I saw them for sale on another forum, I grabbed some! And I wasn't disappointed. They're all over my tank now that the lights are out the the blue LEDs are on. They haven't found the green beans yet, but they've found a few pieces of the nori seaweed, and are also working on the back glass of my tank, which has quite a bit of algae. (I only clean the front and sides, so that was another good reason to get plecos). They are so entertaining already, and I've only had them for 8 hours! Definitely worth it, if you have room.

Go for it, Holstein! They're awesome. They're out again now (all but one). They're already getting used to me as the computer is right next to one of the tanks they're in. They don't hide anymore when I look in there. I put a some spinach in there tonight to see if they'll eat that.
