    I see Plecos and Turtles in tanks quite often and was hoping I was going to be able to have this combination. I tried this today and picked up 5 small plecos for about $.60 total at the pet mall here in Manila called Cartimar. It is a large mall of pet stores, mostly fish stores that have...

There are symptoms of ich on the tailfin, and two of the other fish I purchased at the same time are showing ich symptoms as well, my plecostamus and my red platy. The...

    My father has a ten-gallon freshwater tank that he loves, but algae is a huge problem. One of the occupants of the tank is his beloved crayfish.

    I'm getting pleco, either a rubber lip or (preferably) a bristlnose. I was wondering, do they have any special requirements? I know they need places to hide and should be given food besides algae of the aquarium, but anything else? I heard they need driftwood but I'm not sure.

    On my pleco, there are strange red bumps on him that weren't on him before. one is on his tail, the other one is on his throat. And I think I saw one forming on his head. They look sorta like pimples. If someone can tell me what this is, it would be appreciated.
