What sort of plec is this?
I've been trying to identify my plec, and I can't place it among the lists of 'smaller' plecs on this and other sites, which worries me a tad. I just want to know what I've got on my hands, how big I can expect it to grow, and how long I've got before it's potentially bursting out of the tank (only 35 litre)
Please would people have a look and give their opinions?
It looks like a juvenile chinese algae eater to me. :-?
IF it's a CAE (of which I'm not actually sure) you'll need to rehome it as it'll grow much too large for a 35l.
I've managed to get a couple more pics of it. I hope they help.
Looks like a chinese algae eater to me. Anyone else??
Could it be a Gara Pingi? Here's a link to info:
Pingi Logsucker - Tropical Fish Forums
Looks more like a CAE. On the pingi it has kind of an indentation on the head between the nostrils and eyes. The CAE is smooth and your pictures looks like its just smooth.
CAE's can get almost a foot long. It will eventually grow to be too big for your 10 gallon-ish tank. It'll take some time though. It'll be fine in your tank for quite a while.
Too bad, IF it's not a Garra pingi pingi. I just read up on them and they sound like a very cool (and rare) fish.
