I've seen 5 that long crammed into a 30 gallon at an lfs -__-

They are armored, that's why I thought they would survive Handsome.. Boy was I wrong!

I don't think so. Some of the bristlenoses, like Temmick's Bristlenose, look like they have plates. Some of the whiptails do too, but not common plecos.

Edit: They are? Uhm diablo, don't listen to a thing I just said. ^_^

Yes, yes I am.. 2 of them -__- Well one and a half.
Common plecos have spines on their fins too, you need rubber gloves to handle them otherwise it's oww oww oww!

The pleco and Handsome molested each other lol! The pleco sucked her face XD

Brings a whole new meaning to the term "sucking face."

I know plecos have spines, so do my cory cats and a lot of loaches. Sometimes my cory cats get stuck in the net and I have to push them free. I didn't realize plecos were armored though. They don't LOOK armored. They look . . . kinda funny-looking.

Dang, I have a whole new respect for handsome. It takes real determination to eat a giant catfish and a half...

They're really thick skinned, they remind me of hard plastic or plywood hehehe.. Btw do cory cats need sand and nothing else will do? Or is gravel (not pointy but roundish ok?)

Lol! They weren't giant... Around 5-6 inches, she was 3-4 inches at the time. D:

Rounded gravel works fine for cories. I had to put my cories on gravel until I get the tank cleaned out.

Lol, I was looking at your album and wondered how a turtle got double chins, my question is now answered, lol

And Cory cats prefer sand, but small, smooth gravel works. If you decide to get them, bronze cories are the hardiest and most temp compadible with bettas. Most albino cories you see are albino bronze cories
