As I mentioned in my new member comment, I have a problem....
I used to have a Pleco that I bought multiple years ago, had it about 8 years before it passed on and it never got real big. Because I really liked it, when I started my fish tank back up last year after a hiatus of about 6 months, I went to a chain pet store and asked about algae eaters.
I told them I had a 28 gal
. octagonal tank. They sold me another Pleco. They didn't tell me it would grow so big. THIS ONE is growing and I am afraid it will get too big for the tank.
I am afraid to try to catch it myself. I don't have a net big enough plus don't know how I would transport since it is at least 10 inches long.
Do you know of ANYONE who could come get it and either give it a home or find it a home? It is free and I would be willing to offer some funds to feed it until it did find a home.
I don't want to have to kill it and I don't want it to grow beyond the opening where I would have to kill it and cut it up to get it out. YUK. I'm responsible for it and want it to find a good home.
