PostSubject: ive been bit by the pleco bug   Sat Jan 28, 2012 3:26 pm

just picked up a group of 6 l134 is morning to add to my ever growing collection, last month it was a group of LDA016 long fins, and the month before that it was a group of 6 super reds off davew, he also gave me a peppermint for free which was very nice of him, only problem now is that this pep is such a lovley specimen that i think i need some more. im eyeing up getting rid of the wifes microwave cooker in the kitchen and putting a new tank in there, i,m sure she will understand lol

It's called MTS (multiple tank syndrome) and we all suffer from it. Best thing to do is try not to fight the urges lol. Congrats on the wrigglers too Smile

When you got the pleco bug you certainly got it bad lol!

The Leopard Frog is a super looking fish Good Job


As for the kids I would be looking to sell rather than adoption lol!

Have to agree, the bug is more like an addiction of the best kind. I've got several species of fish in the tank, but will soon get rid of some of the fish and just have bristolnose in it. Love the way they suck on the java moss and bogwood.
