I, and many others would recommend taking that common pleco back to the store and getting something like a bristlenose pleco. Common Plecos top out at about 18" while a bn pleco will top out at around 4"

Once he gets too big for my tank, he'll get rehomed...but he's fine in there for now.

I want to pick up about 6 Julian Cory's next...need a good clean up crew.

Not only will your julii corys clean but they are arguably the most entertaining fish there are.

Today I replanted some newly planted HC that my rummys uprooted and enjoyed watching my peppered corys.

Added two farlowella catfish to my planted tank. They're already eating the algae on my plants!

I added 6 Julii Corys today along with 2 Glo Danios. It's been exactly one week since I started stocking my tank and so far I have 8 Danios, 8 Black Neons, a 2" Common Pleco and 6 Julii Cory's.

I think I need to let the tank settle for a few weeks before adding anything else lol.
