Pleco species named

Many of us have pleco in our tanks, so this may be of interest. Two species that have been around for a bit have finally been scientifically described and named.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thanks Byron. I'd love a few of those Gold Nuggets. ...sigh...

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
