Re: Two new Rhinodoras

You're welcome, Jools. It's fun to dig into papers and extract the keys. Only downside to this one is it begins with the dissected swim bladders. :))

Re: Help, what is this beautiful plec?

Hi redkittyxo, Welcome to Planetcatfish! Nice looking fish you have there. The fact that it has short bristles around the lip and its age and size tell me it's a female bristlenose pleco (genus Ancistrus ) of some type. There are a number of spotted varieties, and many of them change appearance with...

Re: Purchased a small hoplo but it now looks like this

Thanks, yellowcat. I had no idea if this would be a 5" fish or a 2.5 foot fish. That it's a dwarf giraffe (or whatever the common name is) is a relief!

Hi Tom,

I've never heard that, but it might be true. Have you tried using cucumber to attract the snails and then remove them?
