The new kid in town

Ok, I've been keeping it a secret long enough.

Over the past weekend, I traded in my two otos for...

A sailfin Pleco! It was a decision that was thought out over a period of time. The family wanted him/her...I wanted him/her and everyone accepted the fact that the sailfin will eventually grow to tremendous proportions (all the more reason to get that larger tank...right?).

As soon as my sister-in-law returns my camera (which she's had since New Years) pics of the sailfin and the angels will be forthcoming.

Excellent pleco. They can attain lengths of up to 18". I have one myself and it's an awesome fish. Can't wait to see pics.

You should trade in some more fish for some photography lessons! Just kidding!!! I wanna see this critter!

You know...whenever I post tank or fish pics, its usually one or two pics out of a hundred or more that I had to take just to get one right! . I can never get a good pic.

Trying to get a full body pic of a pleco is a very tough thing to do. If they see you, they run for cover! I'm gonna try to "sneak" up on him when he least expects it
