Since I'm a great fan of exotic (and even common) pleco's, I thought it would be a nice idea to start a thread to show off your pleco's...

I'll start off:

6" Sailfin Pleco:


3,5" Common Pleco:


2" Clown Pleco:


0,5" Common Bristlenose Pleco:

Damn I Wish I had a camera I have a HUGE pleco he is about 12-13" I have had him since I got my very first fish tank. He was just an inch then. He has made it through 5 different tanks. Awesome fish, even my Piranaha's won't fox with him.... Thats Nessie!

He is about 1 year old but I feed him like a sombitch! PLus whenever the piranha's let food goo down he eats it or sucks on it whatever he does.... I am going to hook up a digital camera, and a web site so I'll be able to post pics soon. I really like him, he has adapted perfectly.. I also have pleco, that has lepord spots, he is only about 5" but what kind is that? He isn't sailfin or a regular one. An not a Royal either. What is he?

Post some pics, if you can manage to do so, and maybe we can id that lil' sucker...
In the meantime, check out the Cat-elog at www.planetcatfish.com: maybe you can id him there!

i think theres something wrong with my pleco. I put him in my tank 2 days ago, and he hasnt really moved since. I stuck my net in the tank to get him to move, but he stayed in the same spot. Is there something wrong with him? i got his ugly ass to clean the tank, not clean on spot on the glass!

in my experience many plecos are fragile when first introduced to an aquarium, the only thing I can suggest is to do a water change and keep the water as good as possible for it



Oh and this is an amazing bristlenosed catfish
- the only puzzling thing is the pic URL is from fishgeeks
