I am telling tips on fish.First tip if your fish has white spots looking like bubbles it's ick witch is a disease.Second tip before you get the fish you want ask a person who works there how big they will get if they get to big they won't fit in your tank and ask them what tank size they need. Third tip ask a person who works they how aggressive they are ask them what they needs not to be aggressive. Fourth tip if your fish don't eat all the fish food scoop it out it fish food creates ammonia in a fish tank witch is very bad for fish.

i don't scoop the leftover food because i have bottom feeders that come out at night and eat it. Just wondering how big is your tank? And your pleco is so cute in his/her little cave.

not pregnant but maybe egg laden, no guarantees she will lay eggs though, mine got like that twice and either she layed the eggs and ate them or she reabsorbed them. But she does look egg laden.

Nice colourful tank you have there. What species is the pleco? Are you giving her a specific diet? Algae wafers etc? The tank looks very new and clean. Plecos like a well established tank with plenty of alage covered surfaces to graze on. In a clean tank like yours, they'll need additional greenery in their diet, as well as their normal food. Mine love blanched lettuce. They also require some wood in the tank to graze on. It helps their digestion and it's really important that they have some to help them thrive.
