1 BN pleco ~3.5"
4 ghost shrimp (scary big)
3 lime-green endlers 1M 2F (the females may be another "wild-type" livebearer)

All FREE

I am also looking for free plants if anybody can spare them.

I want to reduce the bioload in my 29 gallon tank. Too many fish and nitrates are too high.

I do not know if the pleco is male or female. I will try to get a pic of it for you.

The number and type of bristles on the snout are a good guideline. If the bristles are plentiful and forked, then the fish is mostly likely a male.

If there are few bristles, and they are short, or no bristles at all, then the fish is most likely a female.

At 3.5" the fish is more than half grown, so its sex ought to be obvious. A pic would be great!

Based on Deb's description, I think the fish is a female.

Donald are you going to the JRAS meeting on Wed night? I could meet you there. Otherwise I'll be over on that part of town at some point, likely not before Friday.
