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

Here's a couple of pics. I'm sorry they are blurry. It's the best I can get of it. You can't really tell but it is extremely smooth and shiny.

You're right!

it looks more of a synodontis rather than a plec....

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.

well once you get rid of the pkg's, dont get anymore fish as pleco are big waste producers, look at the 6" fish and think that they make 8" fishes waste.
