Have you checked around the outside of the tank?

If you haven't bought your test kit yet, it would be worth calling around for prices. I just bought mine, an api, at a local fish store, for $21.95. I was pretty excited, that's a good price.

I'm going to order the test kit and the seachem prime on amazon. thats the lowest price I've found. As for the Pleco, no where to be found. Due to recommendations, I'm not getting another one. I am interested in changing the decorations in the tank. Can I keep the fish in the tank or should I take them out?

You'll find you get varied advice on that question too
I leave mine in, even for major remodeling. I just work on one side of the tank at a time, so the fish can stay on the other side.

You might find the pleco while remodeling. I've heard some crazy stories of fish hiding in/under things for months!

When I redecorate, if it's just changing things up slightly, I leave them in. My parrot and dragon fish will rub up against my hand looking for "pets." If I'm over hauling the tank completely I take them out so I don't stress them out. Plus it's like claim your area all over again when I add them back in. Each person and every set up you'll find is different. I think you'll have to find out what works best for you and your fish. Any signs of your pleco yet??

Well, at least they don't get as big, a max of 5 inches. What color is it? I hope this one won't get eaten too. :-( Good luck!
