Columbian Spotted Plecostomus

Was at the LFS today to bring in a few if my gups and this little guy caught my eye. I am currently researching everything I can about him but I couldn't pass him up seeing how she was selling them for only 6.99

Koi, colombian spotted plecos are being sold as such, they're Leopard plecos. Get the same size as commons. :\

Lol well that helps because I can't find much on them, he is currently in the 29 but if he gets that size I will move him to the 75 when that get up and running just to be safe.

Lol I am very well aware in how big of a tank commons need, Chiro was right about it though, the pleco I have is a species that is derived from the Glyptoperichthys gibbiceps group a.k.a the Leopard Plecostomus, although it is slightly different from the Leopard. It can get up to 50cm (about 19in. or so)
I am prepared to rehome the pleco when it grows larger.

That's a gorgeous pleco! I'm not huge into plecos but I wouldn't mind having one like that!
