    My sisters siamese algae eater was attacking her fish so i took it to try and find a new home for it. i was looking at my tank and i saw its head was outa water, half the body, all of it! it climbed out! but when i stood up it jumped back in! has any one else had this prob? and also im thinking of taking it to a petstore and change it for a pleco.....do you think they will change it?

    whoa :shock:

    Depeding on the pet store they might do a switch. The ones in my area do not generally. You buy a fish you're stuck with it unless you want to just donate it back, even then they're very picky. Call and ask, that's about all you can do.

    I have a crazy pleco that will float belly-up at the surface and eat the cichlids' pellets (I have a pic around here somewhere). He also used to eat krill while floating around the tank mindlessly bumping into everything. And I've actually seen him fight some of my african cichlids.

    Here's the pic. His belly sticking out of the water like that just cries out "Poke me!"

    That one is about 5" or 6" SL now (in that pic he was about 4").

    I have another 6" one in my 75. And the 4 in the pond are 3", 5", 8" and 8". At least that's how big they where when I put them in there. It will be interesting to see how much they've grown when I clean the pond in the fall.
