Hi all,

Our grandfather plec is not very well today and it looks as though he will not see the end of his twenty years with us :(

He is a strong boy though and maybe a few well directed prayers to the catfish gods from all of you special enthusiasts may help :hug:

Cheers

Hi all,

Thank you for your kind thoughts and wishes.

He passed away sometime during the night :cryblow: normally king of the tank he took himself away to a back corner late yesterday afternoon and that is where I found him this morning :( .

Here is a link to a pic taken a few months ago.

He is being buried today and as with all of the favourites, will have a small tree planted over him.

Some specs:

He was somewhere between 19 and 20 years old :)

He was 48cm long - he continued to grow slightly each year.

He moved homes 4 times in his lifetime ending up in a 6x2x2 with his companions.

He loved his flake and would skim the top surface for an hour each day and was quite a sight to see :hug:

He wouldn't take any crap from the pesky clowns, nor the platydoras that gave him grief but he allowed the bristlies to climb all over him cleaning his armour :)

He allowed us to touch him, and would play with us during water changes - barbs tucked in.

He was getting paler each year - pleco equivalent to greying I would imagine.

He was never known by any other name than Plec - grandfather was added about 2 years ago.

I miss him already :cryblow:

RIP big man.
