I know it isn't "Ideal" but I had to help him. He was stuck in a 75 gallon. He (don't know the gender) is 14 inches long and quite heavy, He seems very happy to have room to swim. The cable guy saw my 150 and asked if I would rescue his pleco, so me being me- I agreed, don't want to know that the poor fella was cramped up. I fell in love with this monster the moment I saw him.28785

I can have a heart at times, usually with animals over humans tho. The guy I got him from said he just sits like a lump, no wonder- being jammed up and all. He swims all over the place in my aquarium. He is really active, even with the lights on. The anostomus in the picture is about 4 inches long, if you need size comparison. He simply dwarves everything in the tank. I have already petted him in the tank for a couple seconds, he doesnt seem very shy. I am so happy to have him, Sumo is a great fish and you cant beat free for a price.
