Hi Charles.

What plecos do you have? If those are common plecs, I'd take them back to the lfs and get cories instead.:wink2:

St6_Devgru 12-17-2006 01:34 AM

coris arent plecos right??

No. Plecos are part of the Loricariidae. Cories are part of their own family themselves, Corydoras. Take note though that we have Aspidoras and Bronchis to deal with.:) Both look like the Corydoras. The only difference is the number of rays in their dorsal fins.:wink2:

Is this the one? 3 cm is something I'm interested to know. I never knew plecs are sold that small except in some cases like those of zebra plecs.:shock2:

Avoid the clown loaches. They are far too big for your tank.

St6_Devgru 12-17-2006 01:44 AM

St6_Devgru 12-17-2006 01:45 AM
