The new piece of driftwood is now in the tank! BN pleco has been on it once but for only a couple seconds do couldn't grab a pic!! (He's in a scavenging mood at he moment, I like to dart 2 or 3 pellets across the tank every day for him to look around for and find). As soon as he's found some food and eaten he'll level down a bit and might have a go at the driftwood, if he does I'll snap a pic

New piece of driftwood went in today and my BN pleco has had the occasional moment on it but moves off as soon as I get the camera, it's like he knows! I'll try my hardest to get you guys a picture of him on the driftwood tomorrow, at the moment he seems to spend all of his time sun-bathing at the top of the plastic rock (his favourite spot in the tank) and scanning the walls! However when he was on the driftwood he seemed to like it...!

Still haven't thought of a name for him (assuming he's a him), but it will come to me soon enough! By the way I have a small question that you might be able to answer, how am I supposed to vacuum the gravel if I have the plants in there? As the siphon is quite large and I assume that I shouldn't go near the plants as I could suck up the roots...

Thought I'd put up a picture of the tank with the new piece of driftwood in, as I said I will try to get a picture of my bristlenose pleco on the driftwood tomorrow if he decides to cooperate

I like your driftwood. With plants you only vaccum gravel that is far away from the plants or just move the siphon along the top of the gravel not down into the gravel.
