i have one common pleco hes about 3 inches. i also have a new rubber lip pleco and hes probably the same size if not a wee bit bigger. there really cool the common stays under a fake rock type ornament, its shady but you can still see him. as for the rubber lip he usually sucks right at the front glass or on an ancient roman column ruin.

From the way you guys are talking you sound like you know your Plecos. I'm having trouble distinguishing a certain pleco in my tank. Can anyone help? This tank was handed down to me so I didn't pick out the pleco myself. i have a picture of it but I'm not sure how to upload it in a message, should i post it to photobucket first or something?

It's weird because I have a sailfin common pleco and then this mystery pleco and they had a baby. The baby is a suckermouth like the common but it's colored and spotted like the other pleco. Now, to describe this pleco, I can only say it's not bottom swimming or long and skinny like I see all over the internet. It's fatter and swims at all levels but has these feeler-antenna things for bottom-feeding, which made me think it was bristlenose; but I can't find any pictures anywhere giving me a hint at what this type of pleco is. It has fins kinda like a lionfish does...

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated! I can't determine which is the male or female, and the previous owner had absolutely no idea there was a baby pleco in the tank. I'd like to know what type of pleco the adult is, because along with my sharks and catfish, I have way too many algae eaters in my tank and would like to get rid of one of the adults, if not both.

Yes upload it to photobucket then you can post it, I would also start your own topic as this one is kinda old.
