    (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...

    Hi everybody, I have a some juvenile Bristlenose Plecos for trade. They are about 8 weeks old and about 0.75-1.00 inch long. They have a very cool marbled pattern and are active and healthy. Both of the parents to these fish are albino so these juvies carry the albino gene. Right now I have one...

    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. Is there a fish she could get that would help with the snail infestation? Larger loaches would not be an option as I'm...

    So I've never owned a pleco before, and I have a few questions. Every few weeks or so at the local petsmart, there's a large pleco in the plant display tanks. Not the same one, I mean a large pleco is dumped off every few weeks because of people refusing to believe they get huge rather...

    I have two African Dwarf Frogs in a 10 gallon tank and they leave a lot of blood worms and flakes left over (mainly because they can't find them) on the bottom. 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...
