A clown pleco, or 1 or 2 pitbulls would be awesome :D

If you go with a clown make sure you have wood, since they are a wood eating plec.

they prefer to be yes, i would get a small group of lda25 (3 max) or the same amount of otos, they will do the same job on algae control.

where have you seen zebs for £70 btw?

i have seen them for that and more on ebay.

i think i might get a pitbull or 2 when they are in stock. will i expect them regularly in stock and do they breed well in an aquarium? do i need wood for them? thanks for the help

so i can have:

1-2 pitbulls
4 peppered cories
3 male guppies
pair of dwarf gouramis

in a 15g/60l ( i have good (not great) filtration, aeration and i will do 35-40% water changes weekly.

i went to my petshop yesterday and found clown plecs. could i have one of them instead? i have never seen a pitbull in my petshop so i dont know if they will ever have them. if i cant have a clown pec i will ask the pet shop and wait until they come in.

thanks

1 Clown would be awesome :D

A clown pleco has to have some driftwood, pitbull does not, but he would probably like some.

A clown pleco is a panaque, which is one of the few (I am not sure if it is the only) families of loricariidae that have a special wood digesting bacteria in there gut.

In the wild they eat almost exclusivly wood, and can certainly survive on wood alone, but it is really messy in a tank.

i'm not getting a clown i don't think. it says they like bigger tanks.

however, i think i will either get 2 pitbulls or one queen arabesque to go with my 3 guppies, pair of dwarf gouramis and my four peppered cories in my lovely 60l/15g.
