New to aquarium forum
Hi~ well, I signed up a while back and now came here to see about Plecos. I have printed out the abbreviations so I can understand what is being said!
Set up my tank after moving w/o fish. Unfortunately, my new fish kept dying. The water tested correct in all areas and the personnel at the pet store were stumped. I decided to buy a new pump as the old one had been in storage for 7 months and I thought maybe the biofilter had gone bad. Must have been something, as I have not lost any fish since I made that purchase.
I have a 10 gal tank, 3 white clouds, 3 cardinal tetras, 1 goldfish and 1 albino pleco (not sure of species, but father has a cape-like looking thing on back and is not bristlenosed) I am going to get pictures so maybe we can figure out what I have together.
My fish keep me company; I would like to purchase a larger tank that is more vertical and work again with my guppies..they were so much fun.

^_^ Welcome to the community
That goldfish is going to grow way too big for a 10 gallon; an adult goldfish grows over a foot long. And most plecos grow almost as big or bigger.
The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
