Hello everyone, whats your favorite pleco? I ask because I like plecos more than most other fish. Gold nugget had got to be my fav.

BOOOOO!!!

what a horrible question making us pic A single favourite pleco!!!!

I will give my 3 favourites.

In no order, Zebra Pleco, Common Pleco (blue eyed ones), and my unidentified sailfin pleco as he/she is a greedy eating machine.

I googled L144s, they look like albino bristlenoses.

Albino Bristlenoses are my favorite.

They do except that L144s have blue eyes when younger and blue or black eyes when older, Not pink eyes like albinos.

It's hard to choose just one favorite pleco. I like Clowns, Leopards, Royals, and Gold Nuggets probably the most. I like them all but I guess I like clowns and leopards since I've actually owned them. Since I've been in the hobby I've had a Leopard Pleco and 3 Clown plecos.

Alright, since no one else said it, pinstripe panaque is one of my favs. I also have a gold nugget and two BN, but the pinstripe is my fav.

I have a leopard pleco that will swim to the surface to be fed with the other fish. He will eat algae wafers right out of my hand and sucks onto my fingers!:) He is my first pleco and one of my favorite fish.

Sorry to say I don't think that is a zebra plec. The markings and colouration are all wrong.

Well upon further research after posting I believe he is an L129. Still a zebra but not the super rare and expensive L046. He was listed in the store as a columbian zebra pleco. I also have a post in the general forum hoping to confirm this.

I dont think they reeeally count as plecos but banjo cats are my fav, very similar to the plecos but i can go a week without seeing anything but a tail poking out of the sand

Rhino Pleco

It has horns! How awesome is that? I will totally own one someday. It's a shame it's not a more commercially available fish.

Id have to say either the medusa or flash/emperor pleco. Ive kept both, and I think both are unique and fascinating to watch.
