Cheers B!
Im back for more!

Those plecs are fantastic, they are quick too! Maybe that's why they get called flash plecs!

You know the fish you just couldn't leave behind. . . Well, that happened AGAIN!

TWICE.

That's real nice B. Thanks for sharing!

Can I have it?

PLEEEEEEEEZE
(I know, I know, where will I keep it?)

They are still my favourite family of fish. . . Probably be a few years now before I can get any more plecs
(Unless either A, I get more tanks. Or B, something goes seriously wrong)

I currently have 5 (oops), I know I have a spare tank!
Hmmm. . . Just, maybe!

So, update.
Something did go seriously wrong. I lost my papa plec. Not happy.
It's been a couple of months now. . . But I'm still gutted.
(For some unknown reason the tank pH shot to 8.2, but, the glass catfish and LDA 1, are all fine? GH Kh where they should be. . . No other clues? So I don't know what happened except that something killed my fish!)


On the plus side,


4 female betta fish, one of which is not mine! Hopefully between 2 males and 4 females we can successfully breed this species. The plan is to rotate the fish until a pairing occurs. . .
(At least that's the plan!)

Very nice bettas! Hopefully they breed and make even nicer bettas! Sorry to hear about the pleco, but it happens and as long as everything else is fine I wouldn't worry about it. Speaking of pecs, I picked up my first ever yesterday, an amazing BN pleco. I'm tuning in for more pics!

Plecs are my favourite! Even bristlnoses! These are great working fish, they do a better job at algae removal than you, I, or anyone ever could! Welcome to the world of the sucker!

I'm not worried, I did my tests! I'm just gutted because it was a stunning fish that didn't last anywhere near as long as I expected, but cheers, I get what you're saying.

Yeah, there will be more pics. . .

Thanks, and thanks.
It's always sad to lose a fish. More so when you can't work out why!

Glyptoperichthys gibbiceps

Newest addition. Ca. 65mm.
Replacement for the papa plec which died, I'm going back to an old favourite. My last one of these was a stunning and massive fish!
4th October 2015.

I have replaced the papa! With another monster.
I'm calling this fish papa G. Kind of in memory of what should have been

(Or maybe a reference to citizen khan, if you watch that show!)

Read through this thread and wanted to say
NICE!!
I am a little late to the party.
Definitely following and 11 clown loaches seems to be the magic number(I almost got more today)

Diggin seeing you chime in on fish health threads also.
Funny how the long term fishroom keepers are more 'verse' on fish health issues!
Cheers J!
