    Default Pseudorinelepis sp. L095 "Red-Cheeked Pincone Pleco"

    I have been looking for this Pleco for a long time and TUIC has brought it in.
    It is killing me... it is so expensive.
    It also can get quite large--- 18 inches.
    A 180 gallon would probably be too small :(

    Look at what an amazing specimen this pleco is:

    Wow, pleco buddies, you don't see that too often. They are certainly impressive looking plecos, too bad they require such a large tank. How big are they at the LFS?

    Ive never seen them in the local fish store, but Jeff Rapps from Tangled up in Cichlids just put it on his availability list. His are around 5-6 inches.

    I wonder how quick they'd grow? I've never kept large fish like that one, so don't go my opinion, but you would think a 180g would be large enough for a while before you'd have to rehome?

    Do you mean get a larger tank? I hope you do because I could never give it away after growing it out. I become very attached to my fish. maybe in 5-7 years it would give me a valid excuse to get a 220 gallon :)
    Dont tell my husband I said that :O

    A 220g is only taller than a 180g isn't it? 72x24x30". It will do fine in a 180g. Some owners have theirs in a 300, and the width of that is typically still 24". Jeff has been getting those in every year for the last 3 years or so.

    Yea...I was actually thinking about what I wrote here, I wouldn't be able to give up those beautiful fish either, especially if I grew them out large. Well, hopefully 180g will be ok for them!
