Photo Caption: My Plecostomus has adopted the thermometer I just bought and attached to the side of the glass with a suction cup. He pulled the thermometer off the glass and dragged it across the tank to his favorite hangout where he sleeps with it or on it almost every day since then. I think he fell in love with it because it is about the same length, and its suction cup is similar to his suction mouth.
70 gallons freshwater fish tank (mostly fish and non-living decorations) - The centerpiece of my tank are my large veiltail angel and my sailfin plecostomus. These two fish have so much personality, and their interactions are amazing as they compete for food and for my attention.

fish tank picture - One of my Platys conversing with my Sailfin Plecostomus about the fiscal cliff.
fish tank picture - Here is my large Black Marble Veiltail Angel and medium-sized Sailfin Plecostomus - these 2 fish have a real love-hate relationship. Sometimes they just hang out together, and then other times they compete for food and position in front of the tank - quite a site to see with gracefully large twisting bodies and flying fins.
fish tank picture - My Sailfin Plecostomus eating at top of water like other fish. Is this common behavior for Plecostomus?
fish tank picture - Here is my sailfin pleco when he was younger. I am amazed how intelligent he seems to be - for example he imitates the other fish in the tank and tries to eat food off the water surface, and he follows me around as I move around the room, and competes with the angel for my attention. Is this unusual for plecostomus catfish?
