It's good to have another interest, I was getting a bit bored with the Malawi's again, but with the new interest in the pleco's it will give me a break from the Malawi's so I get the love back

Im not sure Kelly.. we have Singapore,Israel,Colombia and Indonesia planned for the opening... thats gonna be 120+ boxes.... 80,000 odd fish.... not enough ....eyes laugh
Scarlets come from Brazil... ill see what i can do thumbs up
How did they sex a 3" scarlet? males get hairy cheeks and are thinner but wouldnt be easy on such a small fish..... also they are very aggressive so watch out will "whip" other bottom dwellers....

The guy who I get to sexed them that's all he deals with the pleco's thumbs up When it gets a bit bigger then it'll go into the big tank before they start attacking the smaller species. Have them all housed in one tank at the minute till I move fish for the Dublin trip and that'll free me up another tank.

80,000 I'm a fussy bugger but laugh Need more money I think yep

Ok cool, so has it hairy cheeks at that size? guess you could tell if its thinner than the rest.....ah yeh he should be ok for a while but they have some tail on them be careful netting him too.... best to us a tub with holes in it or a pond planting basket thumbs up

You should have 20-30 odd species of plecs to choose from sized 5cm up to 55cm wink ... plus all the other species eyes

Ha no prob. im not doubting he did.. mature females are plumper..as in most catfish best seen from above... i just looked at the GT website and they have scarlets down as L114... i myself would call that a leopard cactus plec and a L025 would be a scarlet to me...... this might explain sexing a L114 wink
Just make sure you know which one it is as L114 (8") dont get anywhere near the size of scarlets L025 (18").... welcome once again to the confusing world of Lnos laugh laugh laugh laugh
