The trouble with plecs, each species has such a major colour variation it's really difficult to tell what they are. You basically have to catch it from the river or cut it up.

Edit- I had the same trouble with my first two, every time I thought I had it, the fish grew some more. The only two plecs I've ever kept that I knew from the start were L128 and L030 the colours of these are unique with no similar alternatives.
Lol talk of plecos to me is like speaking some alien language.

Lots of watching so far today. Bloodworms tonight. I really like these cherry shrimp. I've never kept shrimp before and they are very cool.

I scrubbed some algae off my anubias. I performed water changes on 5 tanks. I found 2 dead fry stuck to a filter initake in brackish tank. I have no idea where they came from. I cleaned tank walls, etc. I moved mother back to main cichlid tank and watched new fry all day in ten gallon and fed several times.

yeah i am just going to order another strip to put on it. I'm thinking about getting a spec III and turning it into a shrimp cube. for that one i will probably get a flexible led strip and just wrapping it around the light. I'm thinking of doing a build thread, but its going to be an extremely long process with my other thread for the 29 reef. not to mention i will be starting another for my 75 reef. ehhhh what will one more hurt? lol

I fed all the fishies today and watched my new 8 wk old kitten stare at my 10 gal saltwater tank. I was afraid he might jump into it! I don't think he understands the concept of water... I'm glad he didn't jump into it! I may have to get some glass tops for it.
