Picked up a gold nugget pleco today at my lfs. They have 45% off fresh water fish, changes with the packer scores. The pics a little dark but I thought he was really cool and couldn't pass it up for the price.
Congrats on the new fish! I bought a gold nugget pleco a few weeks back but died the next day. My LFS was nice enough to replace it with another pleco, so I got a yellow prince tiger one. But I think I liked the gold nugget better appearance-wise.
RIP hold nugget pleco. Came home and he was dead. No sunken belly water parameters good. Was cruising around the tank this morning eating algae and munching on the wood.
That is sad news. Can't you bring him back to the LFS you bought him from? And I know the gold nugget pleco isn't cheap. I got mine for $60. Good thing they replaced it, or else that is a money down the drain.
