Can we start a little thread on appreciation for plecostomus? I've got such a soft spot for their little suckermouths and they don't deserve all the hate they get just because of a little bit of extra poo :-(

Reply with pictures of your plec(s) and tell us what you love about them. No hate please!! This is a pleco-friendly zone.
I'll start, here's my sailfin Pocoyo, and my common pleco Baby!

Here is my 2 year old (approximately) Albino BNP named “Alabaster” (like the stone)

He is such a cutie. He spends most of his time on his driftwood, but he loves to eat.

Here is him when I first got him:

Anyway, I love these guys. I don’t get why “hatas gotta hate”, these creatures are amazing.

I have a king tiger pleco named bug and really like them, she doesn't come out much just at night and waits for her food. I've had her for 2 year's and she's just started moving about more now. I will always have a pleco in my tank its one fish I enjoy.
