    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 😢

    (Skip to the bottom for TL;DR version) So I bought a "bristlenose pleco" last night which looked okay from about a foot away, since as far as I can tell spots are part of their normal coloration. My tank is about three months old, so still fairly new, and I decided to just place him in the...

    My friend has a 35 gallon tank with a pleco (not sure what species) and a bunch of mollies. A few snails hitchhiked in with some plants and now there are a few hundred of them.

I wanted to get a plecostomus eventually, but I find they ignore a lot of the "leftovers" when I've had them before, so I was thinking...

I would like osme advice from fellow members before starting this project. Im really nervous to try getting some because they cost so much and I dont have alot...

    Against my better judgement and stern warnings, I placed a 8" Common Plecostomus in my planted tank. Bad things then happened in the middle of the night. It dug down through all of the substrate and the MTS uprooted and re-arranged every plant. Oh well, I was thinking about re-working...
