What Species is This?
Hey every 1, I Went to my Lfs to buy a Test Kit today and I Seen a Pleco that lived in a 1 gallon bowl, no filter, no light, no water flow, nothing so I Put the test kit Back and Said to myself that i cant just leave him there.
So I decided to try and save the Plecos Life.
Im Pretty sure its just a comman Pleco but I just wanna make sure.

Looks like a common plec to me too. Any more pics? Close-up pics will help better.

what are you planning on doing with it since none of your tanks will fit in it?

I am going to put him in the 50 hex when i get it. then i will have to find something new.

FDStation152 01-30-2007 11:06 PM

Where are you keeping it in the meantime? With the problems you've been having with your 10gal I hope its not in there.

musho3210 01-30-2007 11:19 PM

well it will grow out of the hex, i would suggest you using the newspaper or something and give the thing away to someone that can accomodate it well. You could also use the fishforum thread to sell or give away the fish, its best to give it away when young since when its older it will be harder to move (cause it will be bigger lol)

I Know how big they get
(All my other ones got to 18 inchs(and BIGGER!)) but when i looked down at him I just couldnt take it.

Also when i had all my others we had algea wafers..,
can he live without them for a while?
(He is the first algea eater in this tank so hes got food for now...I Think...)
I am Going To grow him out a bit Because he is So so Thin.

And Eventually I Will Get a Paper and Try to Get Rid of Him.....
(How Much U Think I can get for Him? :BIGcha-ching: )

Thanks...i might of found some body that wants him but only when hes a little bit Bigger. Which is fine with me.
