Well if I could get a photo of my Clown Pleco, I would. I have 4 and they are one of the shyest Pleco species around. I honestly see one or two about once a month. But yes...... all four are alive and healthy. All my tanks are pretty well planted. Plus wood, rocks and caves. I've had some big ones, but re-homed them. I'm sticking to these 4 inch suckers. If one decides to make an appearance, I'll add him here.
Big ones like sailfins, commons and panaques are truly something else. They're beautiful, gentle(?) beasts and it's great fun to see them gliding around in the tank. I can understand the appeal of miniature ones though for sure!

If you're ever able to snap some photos, I'm sure we'd all love to see.

Bumping this thread with a photo dump of my dear Pocoyo throughout the four months I've had him now. Don't tell the others, but he might just be my favourite fish.

This first photo is from the day I got him, on the 11th of January! Wasn't he such a sweet little baby?

He's gotten so big since then! His huge sucker mouth is actually in proportion to the rest of his body now!

I think it is a L066, but they are very similar to L333, im fairly new to all this....I believe the tails are a give away. Maybe someone with more knowledge can enlighten me
Oh I had no idea! Those are lovely L numbers though... Perfectly rounded off numbers! 66 and 333! Brings a smile to my face.
