I never understood whos idea it was to make common pleco so widely available. They are such horrible fish for the average size tank.

Its a silver hatchet fish.

I really don't like them. But my little sister does.... But I'll let her and my mom know that both the pleco and the hatchets need larger tanks.

The guy at my LFS( I don't think hes as experienced as the other lady, shes really nice and knows a lot) told my little sister she could keep no less than 3 of the hatchets together... so thats what she did.

Where would we be without fish shops to lie, scam and bully us into bad stocking?

Life.

Being the stubborn parent she is, my mother won't accept any of my advice of her or my little sisters fish...

I guess they'll learn eventually... right?

Probably not. :( The world is divided into the people who are crazy about fish, and the people who labelled us crazy.
