Rubber Lipped vs. Gold Nugget Pleco
In the near future (hopefully - depending on finances) I'm looking at getting a Pleco. I only have a 25 gallon tank so I should go with one that does not grow to big.
There's two Pleco's I'm currently researching; Rubber Lipped and Gold Nugget.
Besides what I've researched (can only get some much info from a document) I wanted to get some personal experience from you guys on either (if anyone has or had both - even better). Pros/Cons, food diet, behaviors, etc. Also include your tank size, decor, other fish stock.
I'm personally leaning towards the rubber lipped, currently.25 Gal - Tropical
