Well when I got the three originally there was 2 big ones and 1 small one. After examining the three the smallest one had under developed eyes. So I called Animal Jungle and explained. They replaced the small one for another one. That is the one in the picture. The 3 have basically split the 125 into 3rds and stay in there respective areas. I will bag this one up for you Ben.

Awesome man.

I am glad they replaced the one with under developed eyes. Most stores around here wouldn't do that.

Yeah good thing about it is , I should of not got it replaced, It was a sale fish since I got it on Wet Wednesday. I dealt with nothing but managers through out the process. They definitely know me by name and face in there. I called before hand just incase. Oh Also they had tiger botias in with Tiger Barbs, I got a tiger botia and the guy marked it at the Tiger Barbs Price! Laughing $3.99

Flipp - on the second one, the one that was labeled L081, it looks like it's starving. The "belly" is very sunken, I'm sure you've noticed this. Also in the last pic the eyes are a bit sunken, which is a sure sign with plecos that they are not eating enough. Are these pix older? Is this fish eating now

Nice pic flip. man that last shot looks like you were swimming in the tank with him. when i get home i gotta throw some veggies in the tank and see what happens. since i only have 1 BN and 1 clown loach when i get home those are the 1st ones i am looking to add to the tank.

I put the veggies near the front glass about an hour before lights out. The loaches get to it first then the plecos. This gives me plenty of photo ops.

Yeah thats a good idea. i cant wait to get home and try that out. i am going to get my cam and try to take some pics with it. my wife says it takes better pics then her cam. which may be true, but it sucks down batteries like the energy hog.

I agree that you definitely have some good photos there, Flipp, and when we get our library going I hope we can use some of them.
Very Happy
