I just got some fancy new wood for this tank, and a fancy new camera. Hope you like :D!
That's an 80g aquarium, and believe it or not, there are 4 small-ish fancy plecos hiding in there (a royal, an exceptionally nice clown, a lemon, and a goldie,) and a marble sleeper goby that is maybe 5-6". 40% waterchanges weekly.

He's around 13-14" :)
He's roughly 5 years old now and has gone through 3 moves with me. I got him when he was very wee :wub:

Same with Baby. Got her when she was barely 2". Started her in a very temporary 20gL and now she's in the 150. I'd say she's 15-16" and HEAVY!!!I reckon I've had her about 7 years now. I got her before I moved to Whitney and lived there for 6 years so that seems about right. Baby and a common sailfin Pleco are all I have left of my original stock. I need to buy some new fish!!!!

This is where most of the plecos usually hang out. There's the marble sleeper goby, the lemon pleco, the clown, and the royal partially pictured at the top. The goldy lives on the other side of the tank.
