After almost exactly a year of hiding under a log, our peppermint pleco has decided to explore the tank.
We thought this fish was going to stay under that log for her entire life. The only time she would peek out even a tiny bit was when the lights were off and her algae wafer didn't fall where she could reach it. Once night last week, a movement caught my eye. Much to my shock, she was scurrying around in the back of the tank! 8O A few days later, she was on the glass.
This isn't a great pic--I hope to get a better one that shows how gorgeous she is! But I'm so surprised by this sudden change I had to take a picture.
