    Hey all, just curious to see what all plecos people have. I just today jumped back into the pleco scene after going to a local fish store 45 away and they had the 2 plecos that I was looking for. So I have....
    1 Royal Pleco
    1 Gold Nugget Pleco (L081 looks most like it but still does not look that much like it, this plec looks like an L081 x Goldy Plec L014 cross!)

    Anyway, what all plecs do you have?
    Also what plecos have you worked with in the past? Just curious!
    Mine are: Commons, Clowns, Bristlenose, Butterflies, L114 Red Tail leopard, L006 Leopard Pleco, Goldy, Gold Nuggets, Royals, King Tigers/Scribbles, Queen Arbasque, and finally the Zebra.

    L114 Pseudacanthicus Leopardus - lovely but aggresive to other plecs
    L316 Rio Jari Zebra - cool fish and doesn't hassle others
    L168 - new aquisition - Stunning and peaceful
    L102 Snowball - nice quiet fish beautiful colours.
    I LOVE PLECS!

    To keep with the thread I have 3 common plecos.

    But I still think my earlier post has a valid point.

    I stickied this so we could all know what each other has. The reason the other one was not stickied is I apparently didn't see it/didn't remember it. After all it was from March 05! All you guys have to do is say something, and I will look into it! That thread is now stickied too! Happy?

    I have a common pleco, and he has a little spiral on his belly. :)

    I'll see if I can find a pic.



    Here it is. This was taken a good while ago. He has grown and changed alot, but still has the spiral.

    I see all these exotic plecos in Israel today. In California where I grew up, there were just brown elegantly patterned ugly plecostamoses! How beautiful the new speicies are. I have a golden nugget Barancistrus L-81. ( I bought him the an hour before Benladin attacked America). I've an ordinary bristle nose also which I've raised from less than a centemeter.
