    The plec (is it a gold spot?) looks quite grumpy, but the finnage is nice.
    Keep your eye on the corys' barbels, I used to have slate like you have it and the silly buggers used to damage themselves on it...... ;)

    The plec has to come out Ian, yes it is a gold spot bought via inexperience, how to catch it is proving difficult though, a lfs has told me they will take it and give me something in return.
    I hear what you are saying re the slate also, just recently I've noticed some damage on the corys dorsal fins, that also is coming out, I've seen some nice big pieces of bogwood @ big W which I will get soaked, planted up with anubias and go right across the back of the tank

    Find a bucket, pot, vase, beaker or something that would be a good size cave for the pleco. Make sure it is well cleaned.
    Then take out other suitable hiding places. Either just wait, or chase the pleco around until it darts into the new item. Put your hand over the end and take it out in the cave.

    Have a bucket of tank water ready to put it in as a holding point, then take it back to the shop.

    Avoid nets if possible as they tend to get trapped and stressed. Also you can often get them to sucker to your hand - they will do that quite calmly out of the water for up to a minute.
