grey common pleco?
i just bought a 5 inch common pleco (having had bad luck with smaller ones, i'm hoping a bigger one won't be as likely to die). i've had plecos before, and every one i've seen, from the little 2 inch ones up to the maybe 18 inch one my mom had when i was a kid, have been brownish. my new one has the same patterns but is grey rather than brown. is it still a common pleco, just a different color? i've never seen one like this, but i think he is rather cool looking.
i've tried to attach a few pictures of him, but he likes to hide behind the rocks and my camera doesn't really like taking pictures through the glass, but hopefully you can see enough of him to see the color.
