he comes out now and then but he shares a home with my shy pleco. At first, the pleco chased it out but now its happy to have a cavemate :D

-edit-
he is skimming along the surface upside down and is exploring the tank a lot now! He makes little clicky noises whenever he tries to bite something like zucchini or the floating plant pod, but never any of his tankmates. He has been peaceful with them, but sorta bumps into them once in a while. Gave my bluish common a good scare when he "clicked" right above his head :D

nope. I got it from Pet Supplies Plus and they are a lot more knowledgable than PetSmart, but the person said that he didn't know for sure but pointed me to some clown plecos, other ones labeled as common plecos and some really cool clown knives :D

They can't.

jinithith2, I would suggest that you either return the fish or get a much bigger tank to keep the BGK in.

A fully grown BGK can require a tank of around 60 gallons upwards, and can grow as far as I'm aware to around 20 inches in captivity.

I am keeping it for the moment for a friend who owns a 100 gallon tank, so when he grows any more, I will give it to him

Nice BGK, angels and other fish, Jinithith2.

Agree with Kate on the BGK's size and requirements.:)

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.
