Smile Another rare pleco and a Bamboo Shrimp..

So this is my 3rd one, I really do love them! Except this little guy is not shy at all and is out in open view all the time unlike my other 2, the Snowball and Golden Nugget. The shrimp is very good with spot feeding and it's also quite awesome to watch. So this is my Royal Pleco and Bamboo Shrimp which are both in different tanks, bought them today from Dobbies Also a picture of his tail because I like it, lol

Nice additions. Bamboo shrimp are fun to watch. My wife got one as a hitch hiker when she bought some plants at a LFS. I don't know how they missed it but lucky me. It's already molted once so I guess it'll be around for a while.

These guys really cling on for dear life.. I had to leave the net in the tank because he wouldn't come off it no matter what mine cost me 10 so it's a nice hitch hiker all in.

Last week he wouldn't let go of the sponge filter after I pulled it out of the tank. I had to push him off.

Cool! Be careful with that bamboo! They need a good bit of flow in their tank.
