Thank you, guys


The biggest one I have are the Sultan Pleco and a Common Pleco not featured in this photo series: both are about 6" in size.

Those pleco's are looking beautiful and healthy. And there is enough wood in that tank for all the plecs, so great set up

Thanks all


Filo: I haven't had the chance the shoot new pics of the Nugget (he's a bit camera shy) - hopefully next time


Gordeez: do't you have a spare small tank somewhere, say a 20g? If so, you could buy a small Royal, grow him out, and once he's big enough (ie. a couple of years later), move him to your predator tank...

I do feed my manny live foods (there are always a couple of tetra's for him in his tank), but my reds haven't had live food for a year now, so maybe it does play a role in their case. But they ignored their bottomdwelling tank mates even when they still got live food.

To be honest, I have no clue why I manage to pull this off, and continue to do so. I have lots of decor and hiding places, so I'm pretty sure that plays a role. But most pleco's are quite active, and do venture out into the open from time to time. I've seen my piranha's charge at them pretty often, but somehow they never make a kill, and always hold back - maybe the pleco's colors keep them at bay (warning colors)? Maybe they just want to make a point, not a kill?
I don't feed my piranha's that often, and they seem always hungry (especially my reds), so why they don't go for some easy snacks is beyond me...
But hey, I'm not complaining


Gordeez: that's a bummer...

But on the bright side, it's always good to have things to look forward to


Thanks again for your kind words, people
