Hey all I’ve just picked up some fish from my local fish shop that were labelled as Hong Kong pleco . I’ve looked online and can’t seem to find any info on them as to care and when I search it comes up with a few different scientific names could someone help me identify these properly and see if I have Male or female as I’m a complete newbie :)

I kept some for a while in a high flow, cold water set up, mine did go for shrimp pellets but rarely to be honest. I am aiming to set the tank up again but on a bigger scale :)

Hi @Aquascoob, how long has your tank been running for?

It does look similar to the Myers Hillstream Loach I will have to see once they’ve settled in a bit and they get some colour hopefully I’ve got a female between them :D I can’t even tell the difference between male and female neons haha thanks for helping everyone.

I’m not quite sure cause there isn’t as many spots on them like all the species listed but they’re abit lighter in colour at the moment. Nonetheless they all look pretty cool so I’d be happy with whatever they end up being lol. Let’s just hope they don’t grow into monster fish :lol:
