So with stock level now at 48% I have been looking into what else I can stock, L141 Ghost Plec, Leopard Frog Plec, Corydoras Ornatus, L141's are sold out at the moment locally, Leopard Frog Plecs are £110 for a pair so out of budget till end of month, so most probably pick up 10 Ornatus which surprisingly only cost £3.99ea in Aqualife Leyland.

On a plus point replanted the Bacopa and Amazon Sword yesterday and they are still planted, the Redheads have left them alone unlike the Jurupari who dug everything up. May pick up some more plants aswell.

Hi Steve

The Corydoras Ornatus are a lovely cory, quite big at around 2.8 inches, great price too.
Is your aquarium a Rio Tapajós themed tank?
The reason is that the cory & plecs are all from the Rio Tapajós.

What else do you have in your aquarium? (save me looking back at all your posts)

Other similar sized plecs from the Rio Tapajós include, L183 Starlight Bristlenose Catfish; Ancistrini sp. (L069) ; Ancistrus sp. (L359); Ancistrus sp. (L369); Ancistrus sp. (L370); Ancistrus sp. (L371); L260, Queen Arabesque Pleco; Hypancistrus sp. (L262); L264 Sultan Pleco; Panaqolus sp. (L271) & the L134 Leopard Frog Pleco which you have already mentioned.

All the best

He's a handsome bristlenose.
If you need any ideas about other Rio Tapajós fish feel free to give me a shout. I have a datasheet with about 300 Rio Tapajós fish listed. ;)
