kudos to you for doing ya research mate, i wish more people would do the same when it came to buying plecos rather than bung a potentially foot long + fish in a goldfish bowl.

pitbulls are great mate, loads of character and certainly more active than clowns ime, here is a pic of mine to wet your appetite!!

i have both clown and pitbull and the pitbull is much more active, always swimming around the tank, whereas the clown tend to find a spot and stay there.

Doesnt need wood like the clown no.

One thing i might see as being a problem if you get a group of pitbulls is the interaction with the 4 cories with you being fairly limited in floor space, mine isn't aggresive but certainly sticks up for himself even when faced with much bigger plecos. were you thinking of a group of pitbulls or just one?

oh and apart from that your stocking looks fine to me so far

and your welcome :D

there's a storm a coming........

are they ok on their own or is there a significant difference if they are in a group?

if i have 2 does that mean i will have to have 3 peppered cories
and if i have 1 can i have my 4 peppered cories??
