Gold Nugget (L018), Green Phantom (L200) or Sunshine (L014)

Postby Koteckn » Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:25 pm

Hello again,

Just would like some opinions as to what my last and final Pleco should be in my aquarium.

I have a 75gal that turns 10-15x the water volume an hour through a 30gal sump. Ample hiding places with algae and driftwood throughout. All fish in this aquarium are fed a wide variety of frozen foods as well as a few different types of pellets and some rare cobalt flakes.

I already have 3 plecos and they are as follows:
1. Albino Bristlenose - L144
2. Royal - L191
3. Blue Phantom (don't believe it's a blue phantom though) - L128

The three pleco's that are up for debate are: Gold Nugget (L018), Green Phantom (L200) and Sunshine (L014):

Please let me know which one you would prefer with the mix I already have.

Thanks!

75 - Ebjd, Rokteil Sev, Spotted Green Sev, L128, 2 rainbowfish
33L - Multi Colony
30B - Peacocks (3)
20L - Pair Enantiopus Melanogeny

I would probably go for the sunshine if it were me. Green Phantoms are cool too though.

I don't see much driftwood in there. How long have you had your L191? they eat wood as part of their diet, not to mention get enormous close to 20" https://www.planetcatfish.com/common/sp ... ies_id=642

As far as the 3 you're considering I think they are all nice but all would like to have wood to rasp on as far as I know

Sunshines have become very rare now that they are no longer exported from Brazil. Gold nuggets are tough to keep long term. I would go for the Green Phantom.
