New Gold Nugget!

I just picked up a small Gold Nugget Pleco tonight (L18)! He is so cute! Is there anything special I need to know about him?

75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

Congrats. Treat him with various foods.:) Worth a try but it never hurts considering various foods allow fish to grow at a fast rate since they receive lots of vitamins at that.:)

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.

Thanks blue - but how do you feed a pleco? I mean I can put food in the tank and assume he eats it but its not like he's gonna swim up to get the food! I put a blanched cucumber slice in my 90g and my qt tank tonight and so far nobody is really interested!

Try feeding him at night. Plecs are nocturnal.

Apparently, they grow to the size which is almost the same as the common plecs but common plecs are still a lot bigger than them.
