So I recently received 4 healthy female Congo tetras....of course I had to go looking for a male.....

I needed up coming home with......

2x 1.5 inch gold tiger L333 ‘belo monte’ plecos....and a male Congo haha

One pic in the bag, and one pic in the tank...one took off and hid right away while one hung out for pics. Now I need pleco caves and I’m sure I won’t see these two for another month. I’m also hoping for a male and female...one is darker than the other so that’s a good start.

Nice tigers.
Definitely one of the easier Hypancistrus to breed
At about 4” give them a nice tight cave and let nature do the rest,
Assuming you have a M/F.
Here’s to hoping for one m and one f

I haven’t owned plecos for quite a long time, and honestly I’ve never given them a cave before. That was my next planned purchase. do you have a recommendation for cave size? Length width and height?
