He or she is a pretty little pleco and does seem to be liking the pepper. Try a sweet red pepper sometime and see how she likes it. Does she have a name yet? Alison

Maybe I was wrong she seems to be enjoying the capsicum.. Might try carrot or peas tonight... She (no bristles so assuming a girl) definitely bigger and filling out now only had her 1 month.. And has finally got the hang of coming out at feeding time gets her far share of what evers going... Shes also changing colours do they change colours often shes a lot lighter and browner than when I got her? Parameters are great ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 5

I wouldnt rule out it being a male. Mine was about 2.5 inches before they started coming in. Unless yours is that size or bigger, they could still come in. And females will also get some bristles, but usually they are on the perimeter of the head, and males will have a line of them going up the middle and potentially other areas as well.
