The large sail fin is pretty cool coloured! Seen any signs of aggression? With the Plecos and the pygos, quite a few plecos get quite aggressive to each other at certain sizes!

The largest plec keeps everyone in check really, they all have there fave hiding spots during the day, then fairly active at night.

P's have left them alone really, odd small fin nip but not for a while

:buttrock: Very nice.

Have been thinking of co-habbing my reds with something but dont really want to take the risk. They are fun to watch on their own and have become alot more active since they passed the 5" mark. They are currently around 6" or so... hard to measure.

I always felt sorry for plecs i had in with pygo's.They just couldn't resist that swinging tail.Constantly nipping it.I must admit he held is own though,Head butting them.
But in the end i got pis*ed with getting up in the morning and all the plants were uprooted.
There more aggro than there worth imo
