Hi Oscar.:wave:

Were you referring to the tips of its tail? If so, it seems it won't.:blueworry:
Sorry to see your plec's tail is broken.:blueworry: He looks pretty.:love:

He's a handsome boy regardless!

hi, can you tell me how that happened? it is strange

oscar 10-24-2006 03:17 PM

Fighting I belive, I think because of the shape of his tail it looks just prone to weakness in a fight. He has been moved between my plec community tanks and although growing well, his tail just gets worse :cry:

RichT 10-24-2006 03:26 PM

u say fighting ? with what? I have a pleco, not the same one , but similar and it jumped out of my tank. I get home and he looked dead. i picked him up and started moving. i put him in the tank, he was looking really bad. his tail and fins were broken. i thought he was gone. but he healed up and everything grew back in a few weeks. i really don't know why your plec's tail is getting worse though. maybe he'll get better.sorry i cant really help

No probs rich, I think I may have posted this in the wrong section anyway? He was fighting with other plecs by the way!
