Pleco died :(

He's been staying in my friends big tank and doing really well. Yesterday he suddenly started laying on his side, so I came over and he was placed into QT for a few hours. After going back into the tank he seemed a little better but then died over night.

Old pic of him when he was 11"-12", when he died he was slightly over 14"



when he was a baby


and a random photo of him in his favorite spot

What a beautiful Pleco. I'm sorry for your loss too. It's easy to get attached to a fish that you have had for a very long time and grown from a baby.
Very nice pictures too!!

I had him for 10 years, and he's been in my friends tank for about half a year.

Thanks everyone :) I'll miss him but I'm also happy he got to spend the last part of his life in a big 75g rather then my 48g.

B'awh :( poor guy.
Must say, that last picture where you can see the scale texture is amazing. They must have really thick skin.

Awwwww... sorry you lost your pleco. He had a good long life because he was well taken care of.

I love the baby pic. What an expression!
