New fishies for me...

The last of my four little discus kicked the bucket last week so I turned down the heat on the tank gave it a good cleaning in prep for some new fish. The problem with discus is you can't put much in with them it seems like.

Anyway I picked up a 5" Gold nugget Pleco I've had my eye on for a long time as well as 10 Balloon Mollies. Acclimating them now. Will put up picks later. Also picked up 6 new Assassin snails for my other tanks.

Awesome Z, very pretty! I can see why they're BALLOON mollies, ha! The Pleco is gorgeous, I hope he comes out more for you.

Gj on the golden nugget, you'll be sucked into the world of 'I must get that rare pleco' now .. Or so I was.

The gnp is very cool. There are so many cool varieties of pleco, I wish more store carried them instead of the monstrous common plecos that sooooooo many newbies end up with.
How big will that guy get?

I think 12 inches is about the max length.
