    I have 2 regular plecos and both are about 9 inches. I set up a 55 gallon tank for my son who loves fish and we were doing great so we put a nice pleco in and it has grown considerably. My father passed away and we had to take in the fish from his tank as well. So now I have 2 very large...

    Okay so I have three BN Plecos, I'm wondering if there is different kinds/morphs, one is albino, another was sold as spotted BN and the last one was sold as a normal. Are they just the same species? Will they be able to breed? And if they breed will the babies be fine? Thanks for all help :)
  5. Catfish
    Okay so I have a 55 gallon with one albino BN Pleco, and I was wondering if I can add some other kinds of Plecos with him? Like a clown or Green phantom. It's currently on a tank with some cichlids and is about juvenile, like 3 1/2 inches. But if different species is incompatible, should I get...

  10. Catfish
    Does anyone know of a small pleco that won't get grouchy...? My plecos from tanks past have always gotten grouchy, and now I have a 29 gallon with a bristlenose pleco who is only 2.5 inches long but is already getting grouchy. He polices the other fish at feeding time. I can throw three...
