Your lipped pleco is nice ! What's the color on the tip of is tail? Orange?This may be my new favorite thread! I LOVE plecos! Adorable pond puppies! Lol
Here are pics of my two, a tiny baby rubber lipped pleco and my big common. Their names are Astro and Dino lol. Astro is only a few months old and maybe 2 inches, Dino is a rescue and over 2 years old and is maybe 8 inches. Photos do not do justice, Astro is the riches and prettiest dark chocolate brown shade with coppery fins and Dino is almost jet black.
@Pidge1992 what kind of substrat do you use? Is it regular black gravel? Looks like smaller than regular.
Looking good !
