The woman I bought him from had a 75 gallon and said the same thing, he has always been lazy, so I bought a small albino Plecco also. So the tank actually gets clean. Next The tetras. I bought 4 at first because that is what they said, two ganged up picked on the other two till they died. Now they are happy as a lark together, side by side, and don't bother anyone else, So no I wont be putting any more in.-more on that in a second. My Upside Down Catfish
is the same, we had two, and they stayed apart from each other. And we lost the second one to a case of Ick, when I brought in yet two more tetras to get more for them to be a "clan" again. So I wiped out half my tank trying for that, plus the two were ganging up on the new two the whole time. So they are fine in twos. I believe it is a corey as the person told me in the store, no I have not been able to find a picture of him. I call him Arnold (for the actor) because his head and everything are so muscled looking and he is a bottom feeder and cleanes to gravel, all over the tank all by his lonesome.
So if my attachments load, you can see the neon fish, Arnold, , my orange and blue/silver Fantail,- (Ricky and Lucy) also the yellow with black spots one.
I don't want you to returned everything, just inlarge your numbers, because thess are schooling fish. Being around others makes them feel safe. This is their nature, not my opinion. The pleco may be nice, but STILL has to go, because of his bioload and his adult size. The other pleco may be a common aswell( different color form) A pic would help. I'm just trying to help you out and make your fish more comfortable. I.D= Neon Fish= Glo-fish( color form of Zebra Danio
) they should be kept in school of 8+. Here's the corie: Pepper Cory
And Common Pleco
. These proflies are writtien by Bryon the most knowable person on the forum, soo this are correct in what they say. I can't speak of the tetra, because I'm not sure of kind it is. Can you post a pic?
