Poll: suggestions for a new pleco
So - the polls are open
I want another pleco for my 90. Stock: 1 angel, 7 congos, 3 BP's, 1 gold sev, 1 geo and 1 emperor plec. I've got plenty of filtration, do rigorous water maintenance and have a big leggy piece of driftwood that is lush (but not out of control) with fine, gorgeous beard algae. I love how it looks in the tank - very natural and earthy. My emperor needs some help keeping it manicured :o)
I want something that stays fairly small - around 4 inches or less, is showy, hardy and is fairly social - meaning it won't hideALL the time.
Saw a gorgeous long finned albino BN P at my LFS last week. Also a long fin clown. Have been wary of buying either for fear of fin nipping. do you see that as a potential issue with my other stock?
Really want to hear about your fav plecos and why you like them.
