    congratulations you do know they like to be in groups right
  3. EmpPlecoWell Known MemberMember

    It might be wise to add one more (but no more than one) because they do prefer groups of 3 or more. But with that pleco in there, it kind of takes up a lot of space ;)

    yep i plan to get another as soon as i can find a home for my pleco :( after doing more research the Cory's scientific name is corydoras trilineatusor common name tri-lined Cory's

    Well Good Luck! If you have a good LFS, You could probably sell him there or even trade him in for a couple more cories and maybe some food/plants, etc. I'm sure he's worth at least 60 dollars
  6. fish_r_friendWell Known MemberMember

    lol hes not even 4 inches and its a common pleco
  7. EmpPlecoWell Known MemberMember

    wow thats weird, I have a mini emp pleco and he's five inches long! Maybe since he is not that big, they will offer you less for him, but just because he's small doesn't mean it changes the value of what he's worth -- he will still get that big ;)
  8. fish_r_friendWell Known MemberMember

  9. EmpPlecoWell Known MemberMember
