I took a couple pics of my pleco Bruce :)
When I got him last year he was 3 inches & now he is 9!
Proud mama! lol

Yeah there's currently nothing in my tank because I'm stripping it down to get rid of planaria. EW.

If someone knows what KIND of pleco this is... that would be cool to know!

He is great! Looks kinda like mine. Mine is a Pterygoplichthys pardalis. There are several that look really close to each other so the tummy pattern, and rays are how you can figure it out.

That is a sailfin pleco. Matches the coloration, pattern, and body shape of a sailfin. Enjoy your fish!
