Sorry he is 8 inches, yes they have similar behavior to plecos but does not hide all the time like some, maybe that's because he is pretty long so he can't really hide. There other name is whiptails catfish. So yah there a catfish like plecos.

The 29 would work for a while but once he got bigger he would need a new home.

Didnt get a pic, but saw a lady walk out of the LFS.on Tuesday with a 12 inch common Sailfin pleco, he poked a hole in the bag they were trying to carry him out in.

And unless you want to see something gory, my pleco pics willn't be shared, since he was ground/cut from 5 inches long to 2 inches long after going up the intake of my filter.
