Pleco ID please
« on: November 28, 2018, 09:24:02 am »
I have acquired this pleco, it has been trough a bit of an ordeal! The man I got it from thought he had no fish left and turned off the heater and pump a couple of months ago, he was moving house so he decided to get rid of his tank. When he came to empty the tank there was a surprise cat fish still living in their. It was in a jug for 2 weeks before I got it and released into my tank three days ago, I havnt seen it since! It’s found a very good hiding place. But today i disturbed some an ornament and got some pics.

Please let me know what kind of pleco you think it is, it’s 4 inches long. It has a more pointy nose than my golden bristlenose.
