    I got this at my lfs about a week ago and now im just in bed staring at it trying to remember what it is. Any ideas? 1523089142567.jpg this was taken right after a wc so the water is super cloudy.

    I have no clue what it is. Other than the tank being too small. He looks alot bigger in the pic than what he is. I will be getting another tank soon.

    I know. The guy at the pet store said he could live in the tank about another month maybe two before I need to get a bigger one. Working on getting a 55 gallon One, just need 50 more bucks.

    A 55 will be too small. They can get well over a foot in length.

    Maybe you could just rehome the pleco and get a bristlenose. It will stay small.

    All of them, or just certain ones? He had full grown ones in a small tank and said they wouldn't grow any bigger. They were about the size of my hand.

    My per store doesn't have any of those.

    People at my pet store aren't very smart. I've gotten alot of false info from them. I've seen alot of videos where people had plecos in 20-50 gallons and had them for years..

    There’s a lot of different kids of plecos though, and the one you bought is always big. It’s much more fun to buy one an appropriate size. From a selfish perspective: a smaller one has a lower bioload and you won’t have to do so many water changes. From an animal health perspective, that fish will have difficulty turning...

    Did you google Ludwigia? It certainly be one of those...
