View Full Version : Meet The Chief

I went to the LFS today and got some new fish. Since I love plecos, the pleco is the main purpose for this thread. So..... I got a clown pleco today! This is the fourth clown pleco I've owned. All my plecos get warrior names so I named this one Chief. When I got him home he was REALLY pale but as I floated him in the tank he started to go back to normal colours. He's still a bit pale and is in the corner but I'm sure he'll come around. His belly is slightly sunken but it doesn't look too bad so I think a quarter of an algae wafer every day should help fatten him up. He's about an inch long right now.

But Chief isn't the only new fish. I got a new Pepper Cory too to replace the one that died a few weeks ago. I named him Bala after the Bala Shark since I like them and I like the name. He fit in great and is swimming around with the other cories scavenging for food.

I also got the first plant for this tank but I forget the name of it. I'll post the name soon as well as pics of the fish once they've settled in.

Nice pickup, but :worthless::hmm3grin2orange:, well at least have some when he fattens up.

Thanks guys. His colour is completely back now and he's stolen the driftwood from the shrimp.
