joe, commons get to 16-18 inches, at petsmart they say 10 but is petsmart ever right lol
she also has 2 common plecs AND ...
My baby pleco doesn't look like any common plec that I've ever seen. I've had it for over 6 months and it has grown maybe 1/4 inch. It is about the size of a cory. It is really small and I'm not sure it will ever get much bigger. I'd get a pic to show you but it hides all the time. It only comes out long enough to race to another hiding spot! I hardly ever see it anymore.
him not growing could be a bad thing, its growth might be stunted, a picture would really help in finding out what pleco he is, but for now, get rid of your pkgs and dont get anything else until we sort out your pleco problem
Ok I did some research on the Synodontis Catfish. It looks a lot like the Synodontis waterloti. The website that I found said that they are rare, but I swear that is what it is. It said that they only get 6" long.
