Great Healthy Pleco

Pleco arrived in healthy condition. Great packaging. Definitely ordering some more fish.

A great little pleco

I placed an order for several fish including this pleco. Upon arrival, I noticed some white colored spots on the tips of the tail and sent pictures immediately to Flip. They responded right away and said it looked like a bit of fin rot and to medicate accordingly. I did and the spots disappeared and the pleco has since then grown substantially and been very active. She is one of our favorite fish in the community tank and eats everything really well. Even though this pleco arrived with the slight case of fin rot, I would definitely not hesitate to purchase again as it was easily treated and the fish overall is extremely healthy.
