seeing as my pleco didnt last forever, I have decided to give an algae eater a go, wish it luck, cause if it gets gutted like that last pleco then its gonna hurt.
It was only 2.50 so there is no big loss anyhow
whats a pimp cat i had a pictus cat with reds for a few months but the munched it one night the only thing that lasts is my pleco which has lived with p's for well over a year
my pleco hold its own rather well, i did have a loach for a few months but it died and was not eaten still dont know why
I`ve tried everything with my p`s as a cleaner. 12inch clarius catfish,4 plecs at 4inch- 10inch,rafael cats,pictus cats , crayfish and cory cats. When i tried these 1 caribe grabbed the cory and tried to swallow it , but the barbs on it`s back caught in the caribes mouth and i had to take the caribe out of the tank and rip the cory cat from inside it`s mouth using tweesers.I have now given up trying to get a cleaner as the outcome is always the same.
