Hi Charles.

What plecos do you have? If those are common plecs, I'd take them back to the lfs and get cories instead.:wink2:

coris arent plecos right??
No. Plecos are part of the Loricariidae. Cories are part of their own family themselves, Corydoras. Take note though that we have Aspidoras and Bronchis to deal with.:) Both look like the Corydoras. The only difference is the number of rays in their dorsal fins.:wink2:

A close-up pic of those 2 plecs will help.:) I'm beginning to suspect they are more of Hillstream loach.:squint:

Is this the one? 3 cm is something I'm interested to know. I never knew plecs are sold that small except in some cases like those of zebra plecs.:shock2:

Avoid the clown loaches. They are far too big for your tank.

More of 16 inches would be the size.:)
You have to get pics, Charles. We'll need the pics to identify your plecs.:)

sweeet its not gonna die right? they look sooo cute when they re so small XDXDXD
As long as they are damp, they won't die. Just do it quickly though.:) Not surprising when you see some plecs taken with pictures with the tip of their mouth held by hand.:)
