Thanks! The picture doesn't do him justice. I really liked his patterns.

Thanks guys! He might be rare, got him for $70 I don't get to see leopard frog plecos often. The LFS had a few so I thought I should grab one before they all go away.

this pleco only gets to about 4 - 5 inches tops, not usually without a fair price tag tho, mine cost £35 about $50 (approx). dont think they are actually a plecostomus either but are lovely fish, good choice

Cool, what do you think the minimum size aquarium is for one? Thanks!

Yes you are right, it doesn't grow large that is why I bought it. They are really gorgeous fishes. It's only sad they cost too much, but I really liked how they look and I couldn't resist it. My BN pleco died a couple of weeks ago for no apparent reason so I thought I'd replace him as well.
