    It’s a sad day for our family. Our 7 year old common pleco who was about 13” long died today. Water is where it needs to be and everyone else is okay. You lived a hell of a life bud never forget ya. Here’s his baby picture and a picture I took a few days ago 😢

    My Pleco blinked today. I was surprised since I was taught only sharks have clear eyelids. This was a blink, lid the same color as his skin, came down, went back up.

    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...

    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.
