    I'm hoping to get a larger tank a bit later on. He is about 5 inches now, so I have a little bit of time to upgrade.

    Yes, he's a blue eye Panaque. Right now he is about 5 inches. The tank he is in is 4'x20"x2'. Ideally I would like a larger tank, but I figure I have a little time to talk my husband into that. Bigger is always better where tanks are concerned.

    Thank you. How on earth am I going to get a look at his/her anal vent? Is there a way to do this without stressing the fish out or taking them on a date?

    I really appreciate the imput. I am going to take 2 to the LFS, and try keeping "Middle Man" who is apparently a female ☺️ and "Big Red" my dominant male.

I thought she (?) was the one who layed the eggs on the head decoration. This one doesn't give the plecco any grief...

    Will post pictures of other 3 fish when I get back from LFS. Need to buy that stuff to keep bacteria away from eggs. May be too late, as they are fuzzy. Horrible picture, I know. He bites me when I try to move the head to get a better angle. Any advice appreciated.

    Thank you Fishmanic. I kinda posted everywhere, don't really know what to do on a forum.This first fish is "Big Red" Looks like he is getting his hump, and he was recently laying or fertilizing eggs on this decoration. Now he's (?) super protective of the area and has wild dark vertical stripes...
