    Saw this guy today, it's looks like a royal? But also not...so is this a royal pleco or am I being too hopeful. Thanks all! They have it marked as a common.

    That's what I thought, but the tail is throwing me off. Maybe someone else will confirm as well. Because if it is...he's going for $10 cuz they marked him as a "green common".

    Looks like if it is the L191- they run about 25.00 for a 2 inch.

    He's about 4 or so. He's hiding in a 40b (he was chilling behind the heater in the pic) with a couple of discus babies; so I can imagine how he gets over looked. Lol @Discusluv if you want him/her...I'd be happy to oblige lol. I could probably get him for free with enough sweet talk lol

    I do want him but where would I put him! I wonder if he would suck on my discus?

    Do you think if I changed the water everyday he could quarantine (with some wood of course) in a 10 gallon tank? I could then put him in the 180 I will be setting up soon.

    They actually are keeping him in a 40b with some discus juvies. I'd be glad to test him out if you want. Would he be able to go the the eartheaters later?0

    I think that would be fine. I could QT him if you want. Keep down the craziness :).

    You can quarantine him? I want him then... and I will pay the ten dollars! :)

    Yes, he will be going with the eartheaters. It looks like they can get up to 18 inches!
