Ah. Makes sense. Better to have a slower flow then too much and make it not fun.
Yes I've handled that part already he's in a 10 gallon by himself now, I just needed a temporary solution for when he was in the larger tank.I haven't read through all the replies on this, so I don't know if you've found a solution. But I have an air stone in my tank that puts off a current of bubbles to create movement on the surface of the water. It was a bit too strong for my betta so I put a kink in the air tube and tied it in place with a rubber knot. There's still a good stream of bubbles that he likes to swim through from time to time, but it's not so harsh to where he loses control of himself or can't swim through it. I hope this helps.
Do you know specifically which "common" Pleco he is.. I looked up Hypostomus Plecostomus but it doesn't look the same.. are there any other "common" species he might be. I can post more pics if needed.Looks like a Common Pleco to me. He is a very nice one.
The problem you may have with the Betta and the Pleco is that the Pleco is nocturnal and may get a bit rambunctious for the Betta.
Pterygoplichthys sp.?Do you know specifically which "common" Pleco he is.. I looked up Hypostomus Plecostomus but it doesn't look the same.. are there any other "common" species he might be. I can post more pics if needed.
I hope so lol, I looked it up and it doesn't look like it to me but he's still young and my first Pleco so I could be wrong I'll listen to the catfish experts. I love his baby pics to seeing how tiny he was compared to his size now he's like 10 times the size he was an I'm proud of how beautiful he/she is turning out to be.Yeah, probably Pterygoplichthys. chromedome52 can help.
Ok I see it now. His yellowish patterns aren't as prominent as all the pictures I've been seeing his dark pattern stands out more but he definitely has them and has way more than 10 rays. Thanks for the help.Looks pretty much like Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps, Spotted Sailfin, but all you need to do is count the rays in the dorsal to verify; 10 or more rays and it is Pterygoplichthys. It is actually quite variable in color depending on population it originated from. Yours appears to be one of the more common variants.
