My plecos

Here they are. Not sure what the other one is but there's no doubt the other is a GN.

I also have a Gold Nugget that I just love! I have a very small longfin BN in another tank that is awesome too. Pleco's are great fish!

Question: Does your GN hide as much as mine does? The back of my driftwood is his home until the lights go out.

Seems this is how they are, Just waiting until he outgrows the driftwood so I can see fins hanging.

Good pics. I vote common for the first guy, but I could be incorrect. Whatever he is, they are both lovely. I am with you, I think the GNs are awesome.

Thanks! Of its a common I may re home. It's already about 6-7". I didn't know that when the LFS sold it to me. I told them I didn't want a common. But oh well. I can bring it back to my buddies shop. I don't want the pleco to be uncomfortable in a 75g it's heavily stocked.

He's gonna need room.

They do not get them in your chain stores Ie: Petsmart/Petco. I live in spokane and we have a lady who specializes in breeding pleco's..
