Wiggler from my First Pl*co Spawn

Greetings. This little critter was kicked out of the cave a bit early, by the dad. I am keeping it with some just hatched Cory wigglers. This is my first pl*co spawn, ever and it is very exciting. Don't ask me what kind. I have no idea, beyond Ancistrus. :-( - Frank

Wow he's a little guy.

On a side note, why is it pl*co instead of pleco?

It's a superstition among some fish keepers. I've heard that the belief is that if you spell pleco rather than pl*co, you can bring bad luck or death to your fish.

Yes, but all have absorbed their yolk sacs. I would think they would be heading-out, soon. - Frank

Geeeze Neilan, I'm a saltie and knew that! This is the first time I have seen it in about a year. I think this topic came up early last year. Hmmm, maybe even the year before that.

Looking at your avatar, it appears you only have catfish. A pleco (yeah, I said it) is pretty much a catfish, so you should've known all about this.
