This is Pleco-Bello, rescued from a 1 gallon bowl that also had a goldfish in it. The goldfish went to a friend with a huge pond. I will be moving Pleco-Bello into her new tank in June, a 125 gallon tank. When I rescued her she was about 2" long and did not look well. She now lives in a hollowed out log in my 55 gallon tank and loves her shrimp pellets and algae wafers. I recognize that it is a responsibility to take in a common Pleco, and I accept that responsibility. She will never be given away because I love her and I have heard people talk about folks buying large Pleco's for their Ponds and the Pleco dies in the winter from cold. I had thought of giving her to my friend who has an enormous indoor pond but I have decided that she will remain with us and go into a larger tank. I love this photo... she is so hard to photograph and I think she swam into the pot by mistake!!!

Thank you so much guys!! I am a bit defensive about keeping my pleco in a 55.... I have received quite a bit of flak for it. I love pleco's in general and really think that the common Pleco's get a raw deal. Thank you again!!
