I mean its up to the keeper, I do not find corys attractive then same with tetras but people fill their tanks with them.
Beauty in is the eye of the beholder.

By popular demand, here are pics of my L-46 zebra juveniles...



The top one is about 2" and I had it for about 5-6 months now. I got it when it was just under 1". It's kind of skinny, since it had not eaten much. The filter I had in the tank was too strong and sucking up allot of the bloodworms I put down. The new tank I have it in now has lots of plastic plants, wood, & caves so there would be lots of dead spots for the bloodworms to settle.

The bottom one was a recent purchase, about a week. It is just over 1".

Hi Eddie,
Your zebra plecs look nice.
A lot of people especially in UK have been looking for those plecs.
So much for the law of supply and demand. :roll:

Thanks. I'm surprised how my original zeb (top) has grown. I can't wait to see them at full size.

Hopefully, I'll get my L-46 breeding colony soon...2 zebras, 4-6 more to go :D. Luckily, I already have a 40 gallon (151 liter) breeder tank, which measures 36" long x 18" wide x 16" tall (about 91cm x 46cm x 41cm). I also have extra filters, extra heaters, an RO-DI unit. Just need to some spawning caves.

I get them locally. There's a guy here locally who breeds TONS of plecos, catfish, bettas, show guppies. The nice thing is, I can pick the best, biggest ones.

:shock2: Tons? Now I know why you're willing to part with one for me when you get back here.

I'm surprised. I actually see a few classifieds of people selling zebras in the UK. Most of them are from this guy named Imer. I have heard good and bad things about him. The bad things I've heard are, that he doesn't deliver. The good things say he does, but they could just be him or his friends signing on the forums and saying that he did deliver with nice plecos.

Hi Lainey,
I edited the title to a more specific name.:mrgreen:

Here's mine:



Hope someone can verify the gender as I'm not too keen on identifying plecs.
At present, he's getting aggressive and thrashing the angels and discus as they get near his territory. Crazy fish.:crazy:

Here's some pics of my bristlenose plecos. They are not easy to get pics of, as they like to hide behind things and are quite active when out in the open...


Here's a baby I have in a tank with neon and phantom tetras, it also shares with a sibling (I do not know the sex yet):



Here is Mom and her son in my 46 gallon:



Here is Dad:
