The Pleco Thread!

Hey all, I'm really into Plecos right now, so....here's a thread for them! Share Pleco stories, Pics, What types you have, anything Pleco! I'll start: I only have 1, a Bristlenosed Pleco. Its just a baby, just slightly under 2" long, counting fins. I believe it's 3-6 months old. I'm pretty sure it's a he, but if it turns out to be a she, I plan to get another after upgrading my filtration. It's name is Tingle, he's normal colored, and still in QT, I got him on Saturday night :)

You know I don't really know... He used to be about the size of a Cory Catfish but now he's like the size of my 3" Goldfish.

Yes. His Barrel Hiding Decoration. It was Beau's because my old Oranda Goldfish couldn't fit in it and the Oranda kept trying to eat Beau so he'd hide in there, but now Beau can't physically fit in it so Echo has taken over it.

He loves it. He feels safe in it!
