Just wanted to stop in and say hi to you all. I'm new to the hobby and been looking at some different fish. Was thinking of getting some of them zebra placos. Do you think 10 would do ok in a 5gal tank....... :twisted:

Okay....not funny, but had you thinking! I've been keeping fish for about 10 or so years. Recently I've got into plecos, and yes I have a vary strange sense of humor! Well that's a little about me, hope I get to know all of you! :D

Hey stuby, welcome aboard! Your background will be beneficial to us all, and you've also found a good place with a lot of experts (Notice I never claimed to be one :lol:).

Any pics of your fish?

Here you go :)

Simply click "Upload picture" when posting. The picture choosing box will pop up. Click "choose" to locate the picture file on your computer and once it is selected click "send". You should then see the image. Click "standard" insertion type and the picture box will close. You will see a line of text in your post that looks something like this:

img]http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/YOURPICTUREFILE[/img

When you click the "Preview" button below the posting window, you will see that this line of text actually inserts your picture which is now stored on the server. It may sound complicated to do, but you will find it is pretty simple once you've done it once or twice.

Giday stuby. That setup sounds good but you'll need a few midswimmers. Pirahna make great tankmates for zebras.

Welcome aboard mate !!

Yes, of course. But don't forget that you need to add an Oscar into the mix to join all those little bottom dwellers. The 10 would just look too bare!

Okay, I admit it, I have a sick sense of humor. :roll: :oops:

BTW,
HI!!! :D :D

Welcome to the forum Stuby!! Seriously, when I first read your question about 10 zebra plecs in a 5 gallon tank, I nearly fainted! Glad to hear you are actually a person with common sense. :)
