    do you ever feed them apple slices? Have been wondering about taht. my bn loves watermelon so i thought he might like apples too.

    and BTW - thanks SOOOO much for posting photos of this gorgeous fish on the day I'm going to the LFS. It's going to make it that much harder to walk away without buying one of these guys. :o(

    I think I've tried apple before. Here's stuff I know my plecos love;

    Potato
    Butternut squash
    Carrot
    Courgette (zuccini)
    Aubergine (egg plant)
    Cucumber
    Seasonal squash
    Pumpkin.

    Aw I do apologise

    Nice try but that is not an apologetic grin.

    Anyway ...thanks for the list. my bn likes spinach, too btw. i feed it for the snails but often find the BN huddled over it munching away.

    And BTW - SHOULD I come home with a pleco today, I know it will have been QT at least 2 weeks at my LFS but, I'm wondering if I should QT him or her at home too. And if I do ... how do you QT a pleco? I don't have extra driftwood, there's be no algae in the tank for him to eat. I could drop in a few rocks so he could have some hiding places, toss in bottom feeder pellets and algae wafers for him but I'm concerned he'd be stressed from the starkness of the tank.

    Again -this is an indy LFS. he qt's for 2 - 3 weeks before he ever offers them for sale. each tank is individually filtered so I'm thinking maybe I'd be okay to put him in my tank straight away?

    Oh - and since you do know so much about plecos -- I've never had 2 in the same tank. Do they ever get aggressive with each other?
    thanks - and sorry that i sort of hijacked your thread :o(

    Well it sounds like a reputable lfs, I think you'd be safe enough to just pop him in, will save on stress.

    You will know yourself though if that's a good idea

    Some plecos can be grumpy towards eachother but I'm sure 2 in a 90G will be fine. Remember the more wood and large riverstones you have the more areas there are for territories and visual barriers.

    If you scroll back in this thread you will see my tank, overloaded with wood, allows me to kinda overstock on plecos
