Uh oh. Duh I forgot plecos eat plants. He is loving my spiral Vals.
Doesn't seem to bother the swords, moss ball or (of course) onion plants.
Live and learn I guess. Dang. Good thing the Vals were cheap (but
expensive meal for one little fish!)

I've never done anything to you people. Its just that someone in
particular likes to cyberstalk people like me from group to group.


Yes, his name is Roy Hauer. He also uses the nyms Roy or Tristan. He also
impersonates other posters, myself included, to post smut and xxx-rated
garbage to trash these groups. Hard as it is, try to ignore him. He will
try to say whatever he thinks will hurt you the most and do you the most
harm. He's sadistic and cruel, a true sociopath.

Obviously someone
with way too much attention on their hands, and obviously someone with no
clue about the person they are harassing. I killfiled that "Roy" (and
other names) jerk long ago, I only saw this because people replied to his
posts. Really, pick better people to reply to then that stalker.


If EVERYONE on these groups would ignore these trolls they might go away.
But they post an occasional sensible post and people reply as thought they
were a sensible normal person........ sigh,..... so the troll stays. Once
they know they're in everyone's killfile they usually look for better
trolling fields.

Your tank is lovely. The goldfish looks like a "redcap." :-)

Yes he technically is a red cap, but without much cap. I've tried different
foods and he has never developed a big cap and he is 5 years old.

My new problem is my pleco is having a huge feest on my Val plants. I need
thoughts on any types of plants Plecos won't eat. I'm guessing the onions
are probably safe, and so far no interest in the swords. Any experience
with this? I really want to keep live plants.

===========================
I can't help you there as my plecos don't eat the plants, just the algae and
a pellet or two. They also rasp on the driftwood. I have the regular pleco
and the small clown pleco. What have you been feeding the pleco before you
put the plants in the tank? Is he now unwilling to eat what he ate before?

He was eating flakes them fell down, but mostly algae wafers. He still eats
the wafers overnight. And I do see him cleaning the glass a lot, but
that's problably when he is already full of Vals. If he doesn't
bother my swords and onions, I'll get more of them I guess.

You may want to think about trading him in for a few otos aka otocinclus
(sp?) . They stay small and eat only algae.

Thank you for the tip. I live in Wisconsin and I'll call Foster & Smith
tomorrow and see if they have them in their local store to buy. I have a
co-worker at work with a tank, I can probably bring the Pleco there as I'm
sure F&S won't trade it.

========================
Make sure when you replace it, if you replace it, that you get either otos
(get at least two) or a plec that stays small. My 3" clown plecs are the
same size after a year. They do need something to hide behind to feel
secure. A upright piece of shale would do. Also, wait until you have some
algae for them to feed on if you do get otos. I've never had them willing to
eat anything but algae.
