This is the big one L001 Pleco

This is my L66 Pleco (Sorry for quality... I these days I am having a problem with water - maybe bacterial bloom)

This is (or I think it is Laughing ) Farlowella Sturisoma sp.

This is (or I think it is Laughing ) Farlowella Gracilis

And This is (or I think it is Laughing ) Rineloricaria Parva

I will apreciate if anyone recognise the last three Smile

The tank looks great, but isn't the stock a little on the high side? I've got angels in my 75gal(your is about 68gal) and after 2 paired I had to remove my other 3 because they were being killed. Maybe you will get lucky and have all same sex angels. The butterfly fish is great looking, I've always wanted one myself -.-
