Indian almond leaves in 3 different stages of decomposition, from my L190 royal plecos grazing on them.

Some more L190 royal shots.






Update and good news on the new L142 I bought last week.
Since treatment, the pleco's fins have healed up, overall body mass is beginning thicken again (really skinny when I initially got it, almost looked like a tadpole from above), face is filling out slowly (still a bit sunken in, as you can see from that dark patch on it's snout), it's feces are not white and stringy anymore, and the pleco's belly is now flat/even (can be seen it the reflection on the bottom of the tank) and no longer caved in!
I knew it was risk buying this pleco with the condition it was in, but I'm glad I took it in because I knew this pleco had a fighting chance!
Will continue to update everyone on the pleco's road to recovery.

Awesome pics, Panaque-fan. I hope the little guy fully recovers. How many do you have at this point?

Great pictures, L200 are my fav pleco's I notice you have no substrate in your pics?
My L200 digs into the substrate to reach the algae, he manages to bank the substrate up a good couple of inches.
