    As I was planning what fish to eventually put in my 50 gal tank, I came across the rubber lipped pleco. It seemed like a nice looking pleco that didn't get too big and would eat algae and vegetables, so I started to look for it online. I came across this article about the fish, and I learned...

    Approx 1 year old, unfortunately not playing nice with my goldfish. No bristles, which is why I think she's a lady. Approx 4" nose to tail, healthy and loves to eat. If you can provide a good home for her, she's yours along with a full bag of pleco wafers. Pick up in South Brooklyn. EDIT: I...

    So I was at my local pet store the other day and they had some really cool looking bristlenose plecos. Problem is they are babies (about an inch long to longer for sure), they almost look like 182's or 183's they are black (really dark brown?) they have small white dots on them and have a white...

    I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose an illness with my tropical catfish. He's a 13” Pleco (I'm not sure the species), 15 yrs old, who seems to have some sort of infection (see pictures). Details: My pleco has some white sploches on his stomach, at the base of his fins, and around his...

    Hello, I'm trying to identify the culprit behind who is eating my plants. I am occasionally finding "U" shaped bits in my plants. I never see the fish doing it with the lights on, so I'm wondering if the pleco is responsible.

    Hey guys. I just got gifted a 55 gal tank with current residents of a huge pleco and a red tailed shark. Now... it's nice cause these two fish have been actually in my life for at least six or seven years, really since I've been going to this person's house visiting her daughter. :) The pleco...

    Opps forgot to update this! Pleco was re-homed to a nearby educational group with large tanks and experience with pleco keeping (in other tanks). Sadly I cannot provide a large final tank for my Leopard Sailfin Pleco (Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps) due to life just generally wrecking plans. He's...
