Definitely incorrect! The GN grows slower but gets bigger have a look on Planetcatfish at L018, L081 and L177.

Definitely! Although there are other smaller plecs that could be suitable. Some Hypancistrus stay small enough and are stunning.

Oh definitely. My albino female is very nosy and out a lot, males will tend to adopt a cave/hidey hole and stay there a bit more (almost permanently in the case of my 2 males!)

You should pop over to plecofanatics sometime Smile

UPDATE:

I'll have NO "i told you so's!!" cos i already know but...

Oscars have disappeared, one by one. All was well and dandy, been together a week or so and the piranhas was still hiding under the bogwood until feeding time when they came out, but ONLY if you sat completely still or they'd be off like a shot.

So told the bloke in the fish shop i go to (and is actually recommended by PFK ive just found out!) and he said to TRY some danio's in there, to entice the piranhas out of hiding and the theory being that they'll be too quick for the P's to catch. So bought 6 Pearl danios (lovely fish!) and all was well..until 2 days later i woke up and an oscar had gone...next morning another...next morning another.

So im not going to get anymore oscars BUT the danio's are still all intact AND my P'S are coming out of hiding now and not so scared when you enter the room. Tried them on prawns yesterday and they ate them whole...in ONE gulp lol they loved them!! Even let the danio's have a little nibble!!

So no I TOLD YOU SO'S!! lol worth a try, Ps have been known to live with other species so you never know until you try. Anyway, at least they're coming out now and the tank actually looks like it has fish in it, instead of just plants lol!

Other thing is now im NOT risking putting the plecs in which is a MASSIVE problem cos of the 124l tank they're in! Could possibly get a bigger tank but how much weight can upstairs floorboards REALLY take??

oh I am really sorry about the oscars - deffo not going down the "I told you so" road! but werent you going to put them in another tank if there started to be problems?

yes i was BUT i thought will see, maybe that oscar just annoyed one of the p's, maybe went into their "hide out" or something and then all 3 was gone. Just one of them things and was kicking myself but then i thought if i hadnt of done it i'd of never of known.

Sometimes the only way to try something out isnt it, to try it and if it works WAYHEY! but if not, at least you know

Very nice, Phishy. Smile

I second indigoj's recommendation for Plecofanatics and also Planet Catfish. Both are great websites for the plecaholics among us. The latter also has good info on Corydoras and Otocinclus species while Loaches.com is great for all things...errm, loachy! :lol:
