    Default What kind of Pleco's do you have?

    So recently I've noticed alot of activity on the forum about Pleco's. I've absolutly loved Pleco's since I was a kid, when we had a common one. So I'm just interested to hear what you've got now! Add any extra information you want to add as well! Names, size when bought, size now, amount paid, tank mates... If you have any tips/suggestions for anyone elses Pleco's, go ahead and post! You're the boss! Remember, this is just for informational purposes here. Try to avoid pressing your opinions or starting debates!

    Here's what I've got!

    150gal:
    Big Daddy - Common Pleco (L021).
    I don't remember how big he was when we got him, but he was pretty large. In the 8" range. Paid $30 for him. He's between 12"-14" now. Soon will be moved to our 280gal. Tankmates are an oscar, a green terror, a convict, and a clown knife.

    40 gal:
    Royal Pleco (L190).
    These guys can get big, don't worry, I have a bigger tank for him when it's needed. I think we paid around $30 for him. He's currently about 2". He's in a tank with 2 Dragon Bichir's.

    15gal:
    Rubberlip Pleco (L187).
    He's part of the clean-up crew. Paid about $10. He's in the tank with 8 red-eye tetra, 4 glass catfish and a BGK (again, have a much larger tank available Remember, this is about pleco's! ).

    15gal:
    Gold Nugget Pleco (L018).
    Paid $20.00
    He's in the tank with 4 Tiger Barb, a cory, and 2 rainbow fish.

    Does anyone know if a Common and a Royal (when he's big enough) can go peacefully in a 280gal tank together?

    Lets hear about your Pleco's!
