This is just one of those funny things I think all of us who have bought a tank on Craigslist has ended up with.

My story: I went to go pick up a 56g column (now Lloyd has) and the owner failed to mention it still had a fish... a 12" common pleco that had a deformed tail. Sad to listen to him say this was like his third one. He kept buying them from the pet store, grew them out and took them back. Im surprised no on ever suggested a bristle nose to him. I ended up 'donating' it to a local fish store for free.

So what are your giant pleco stories?

I ended up with a featherfin catfish and two bumblebee catfish this way, only one is big. But she is about ~7" now.

Those are not that bad to end up with (until they eat your other fish)

I cant prove this but I do believe the pleco with the bent tail is still at the store I gave it to. In the big tank at Aquarium Paradise there is a pleco that looks to be it but now its really BIG.

Now that I've got a better diet for the featherfin no fish have disappeared Smile it's really grown on me. She and my sailfin hang out together. Smile

I plan on going to AP in the next few months. I'll have to look for it!
