and one of my male crowntail bettas and blue apple snail. The other betta is new and is still very small so he doesn't flare yet, but when he does ill take pictures Wink

Wow, I had two female crowntail bettas that looked exactly like yours! Scary!! That pleco might be a little big (or will eventually get there) for a 10 gallon. If you want algae eaters, get some otocinclus since they stay small and do a really great job.

Byez!!! Very Happy

Ah! I love the sponge bob pineapple house! Very Happy

Very nice fish, but like the last person said, that pleco might get too big for your tank.. maybe you shoud take it back and invest in some otos?

Very nice setup Cool The tank looks real clean and well maintained.

I would have to agree with the previous posts about the pleco being to big in the very near future. It looks like a common pleco to me, it will grow really fast. Getting over 12 in.

All in all a very good looking tank. Very Happy

thanks Very Happy

hmmm, how about a clown pleco? heard they stay rather small like 4 inches and under "Banded Peckoltia" theyre only 3.9inches[10cm]

oh yea I also measured incorrectly[the pleco][actually didn't measure at all before, just approxximated Lol] hes actually 2.3inch[5.9cm]

aw I was hoping he wasnt a common pleco because at my lfs he was in a tank with clown plecos and I saw he was different from the clowns so I asked the person for him and he bagged it and I looked around comparing them to their common plecos who where huge and were a lot darker lol I thought I had a deal on something different. oh wells Rolling Eyes

oh yea he seems to move around a lot, and I mean a lot he doesn't seem to settle in one spot for long, my friend's common plecos are huge and lazy[barely move].

smaller plecos are actve and eat algae really nicely. As they get larger they become fat, dark and lazy. They also can reach 3-4 feet long and my brother in law swears he's seen an 8 footer in Venezuala.

For your tank, I think ottos would be the best choice.

Spotted raphaels are similar to striped but stay a little smaller. They don't eat algae but are said to love snails. Might pose a danger to smaller fish.
