    Saw this guy today, it's looks like a royal? But also is this a royal pleco or am I being too hopeful. Thanks all! They have it marked as a common.

    That looks like a royal

  3. KinsKicksFishlore VIPMember

    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".

    The striping on the pectoral and pevlic fins look wrong for a royal

    Lol than I have no idea :p. He's very pretty tho

    Maybe a watermelon pleco? I just thought of this rn

    Maybe a gold royal? Dulled eye Royal? I think it's a Gold royal pleco IMO

    Spoke too soon, I saw something called a L191 Dull eyed Royal Pleco that looked just like your picture.

    I dont know:D what it is , but I would be wanting to take that beauty home.

    Omg, it looks very much like that! Lol thanks @KimberlyG; idk how you been found that :p...hmmmmm. I'll have to squeeze him in somewhere if it turns out to be so
  11. KimberlyGFishlore VIPMember

    It certainly doesn't look like a common green! lol
  12. DiscusluvWell Known MemberMember

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

    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
  14. DiscusluvWell Known MemberMember

    I do want him but where would I put him! I wonder if he would suck on my discus?
  15. DiscusluvWell Known MemberMember

    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.
  16. KinsKicksFishlore VIPMember

    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
  17. KinsKicksFishlore VIPMember

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

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

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