Smile My plecos

Hi everyone,
I recently joined the forum and would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome!

While at one of my LFS, I finally decided which plecos I'd want to house in my 75 gallon growout and picked up a few.
All plecos are around the 2"-3" mark. Prices were pretty good too for their size, at least from what I've seen in other stores around my area.
Currently got them feeding on Northfin Kelp Wafers, Northfin Krill Gold 1mm pellets, Northfin Veggie 2mm pellets, pieces of shrimp, and zucchini.
So without further ado here's the plecos:

L177 gold nugget 2.5" - x1
L200 green phantom 2"&2.5" - x2
L200 high fin males 3" - x2

Will add pictures soon

Group shot, but the male green phantom is hiding on the other side of the driftwood.

Finally added my favorite species of pleco to my current collection. From my username, you can pretty much guess what the species is. Without further ado:

New purchases: 3 baby L190 royal plecos (1.5"-2").







L190 royal #1 (1.5"), nicest looking face/snout stripes of the three.



L190 royal #2 (2"), Nicest tail shape of the three (can't really be seen in these 2 pictures, but the caudal fin is quite broad and tapers off to 2 really nice points).



L190 royal #3 (2"), Nicest overall shape and has the most full lateral lines of the three. My personal favorite.

Some updated shots of my L190 royals (#2 & #3). Couldn't get pictures of L190 #1 (it's rather camera shy, compared to #2 & #3).

Nice shot of my male Sewellia Sp. spotted with L190 #2



L190 #2


L190 #3 on driftwood and L190 #2 underneath.


L190 #3 and #2 feeding on zucchini/courgette. #3 is the one that latched on first.

From left to right: Male Sewllia Sp. spotted, 1.5" L018 gold nugget, L190 #3 and #1.


Some updated shots of my L142 snowball 2.75"



A new L142 snowball (3") that I recently picked up. A bit of a story with this one. Got this very thin and sickly (arched back, concave belly, transparent and worn out fins, and a very sunken and boney face) L142 snowball from a tank of L102 inspectors. Even though I'm going against the rule of buying sick fish, I couldn't leave this stunner to wither away. Brought this pleco home and put it into a 15 gallon hospital tank where I'm currently treating it for internal parasites and bacteria.
Good signs are this pleco has enough energy to still move around actively, and it's still feeding. Got it to feed on some zucchini last night. Will keep everyone posted on it's journey to recovery.
