Gold Nugget Pleco

I have been wanting a gold nugget pleco for months, but when I only had the 20g tank I really didn't have enough room for one plus I never could find them anywhere. When I got the 55g, I knew I had to finally get one. I finally found one at a new Petsmart that opened up about 15 minutes away. This was the most expensive fish I have ever bought at 40 bucks, so I definitely splurged (I know some fish are way more than that, but it was a splurge for me). It was so worth it though. I love him!

Here is a picture. I took this while he was in a small bucket as I was acclimating him because I knew once I released him into the tank, I may never be able to get a good picture again. What do you think?

beautiful fish. For your wallets sake never go saltwater. I don't even flinch when a clerk gives me the price on a fish anymore.

Thanks for the compliments! He's doing great in the tank so far. He loves my huge piece of driftwood and he actually doesn't hide as much as I thought he would.
