Kissing gourami eh? Never would have though of that one!

Most LFS have plecos at juvenile sizes, even if I get one that is going to grow big, it might get eaten before it does! Is my only option to order a pleco of a larger size from the aquabid or something? I might be able to have my LFS to order something though...

Last time my local fish store (really reputable one both locally and nationally) recommended me a Tiger Pleco about 3.5 inches long and told me its okay. Well I released it into the colony and didn't see him for a while. Looked around on the internet, worried that he got eaten but I finally saw him last Thursday and decided to re-aquascape the whole tank in an effort to catch him before he really gets eaten (hes fast!). I was afraid of my fronts getting tempted for some reason because the pleco was borderline food size.

I also heard from ppl that larger plecos don't even eat algae from walls anymore and just pose a threat to the other fish because they will want to eat their slime coat. Is that just will the regular ol' pleco or do fancy plecos do that too?


About plecos... you need to know that not all the species are good algae eaters... or the ones are.. are only in juvenile stage (in certain species of course)....

But the kissing gouramy never fail in that job.... I see that myself

Think in that even the kissing gouramy or any pleco are from same geographycal zone as Fronts... so I would say Gouramy is closer than pleco...

Of course in only my opinion... I am not the owner of the truth... I only refer about my own experience

awesome, thanks.

just to be sure, the algae we are talking about is the blotchy brown algae on the glass that is easily scraped off right? the kissing gourami eats it even when there is fish food being fed every day?

Kissings will eat ALL... the algae you are talking about and also the planaria usually lives in the glass... they will kiss all to take some food... it happens because the other fish eats much faster than gouramy... so the only way to eat will be kiss even the corners of the tank... you will see how clean the glass and the rocks and the accesories will be
