My little 4" spilo was tearing up a small 4" pleco I had with him so I took the pleco out and put him in my feeder tank, and replaced him with a 12" pleco I had in my pygo tank. After about 5 minutes my gf says "that little bastard just bit the pleco, you need to get rid of him, he is just too mean". So I check out the big pleco and sure enough, my little spilo let him know who is the boss.
Here is my little spilo.


this pic is of the 4" pleco I removed. He has almost no tail fin, his other fins are nipped pretty bad and a pretty bad bite on his back.


This next pic is of the 12" pleco I put in with him and you can see the bite he got within 5 minutes.


This little dude is one mean little spilo.....ya gota love him!

How about some pics of the spilo?


I am expecting to allot a huge budget for plecos when my tank gets up and running!
I hope the 12 incher survives as he is very nice looking!

Ha, the first pic didnt load that fast.
That is one nice looking gold!

The funny part is when I got him he was like 2 inches and my gf thought he was so cute, now she just thinks he is an evil little bastard! :smile:

Give him time Hannibal, he had been with the little pleco for like 6 months and never really picked on him at all. I was a little shocked he attacked a huge pleco like that, even though he is savage when it comes to feeders.

well my spilo just ripped off one of my plecos fins so I can see he is more aggressive. Its a killer when it comes to feeders, I just never see it. Thats what pisses me off

That pleco is a work horse. He got the crap beat out of him by my rhom so I placed him in the pygo tank to heal. And not the little spilo taking him apart. I have seperated them because I am picking up a Geryi this afternoon.
