Topics I've Started

Big Pleco and Little Pleco

15 October 2004 - 04:08 AM

I have a large Pleco (not sure of the name - medium brown with very high dorsal fin and completely covered with darker "leopard" spots) that has grown to about six inches. I'm in process of acquiring a small (2 1/2 inch) Zebra Pleco. I know their import has been banned - I'm getting this one from a breeder. Do I dare keep them in the same tank? Zebras being so pricey now, I don't want anything to happen to this little guy. Plus, I've always wanted one! Also, any suggestions about the specific requirements of Zebras? Are they different from "regular" Plecos? I know they need lots of hiding places - how can I arrange to see this one once in a while? Thanks for any input you can provide.

Gold Severum vs. Scalares

15 October 2004 - 04:00 AM

I'm planning to set up a 55 to 60 gallon freshwater aquarium to contain a few gold severum and a few angelfish. Plus some bottom feeders, I guess. I've kept many cichlids - all the way from fairly docile to incredibly savage (Green Terror!). But I don't know either severum or angelfish well enough. Ultimately, I would probably thin them out to a mated pair of each fish. Any thoughts or suggestions? I really don't care for blood sports!
