We are both on the same pace. Beat me to adding to my group but love seeing your group gives me motivation. Keep updating....
Do you have a thread for me to follow???
honestly I just really lucked into all of these when I did. They are not often available in my area so I had to buy when they were available to me.
This group is smaller than the others, they also have thinner back stripes, their white is even whiter in person.
I was offered 3 additional males but had to decline as my wallet is now flat lol

Bought play sand for their setup, sanded down the sharper edges on the pleco caves, caulked some holes in some caves that potential would be fry could get stuck in. My stand is next on the order list so I should soon have it.

some updated pics, I like taking pics of their fins and stripes as each one is unique

Today is sad update.

firstly though, my stands are almost done (yes almost, the guy building them got injured and this out my stands on hold). Wait what stands? Yes stands! I’m getting two stands made now one will hold the original 20L and 5g below. The second stand will hold a 33L and 2x’s 10g below.

Now the sad part, I went and purchased safe for water changes. Well I lost about 10 fish today between two tanks...3 loses were zebra plecos. So my group is now ow to 7.

I currently have the zebras in alcohol to preserve them.

Thank you.

it’s not easy to accept.

Ive emailed seachem my measurements for treatment and asked for their feedback on my dosage and I’m waiting for a reply. I suspect I under dosed the safe.
I totally understand.

Sucks for the loss. U should age your water for a few days before doing waterchange to be extra safe. I have a 55 gallon trash bin with a pump I use to age the tap water for several days before using it to do waterchange.
