Really just small fry
A newly introduced, and rather bumptious tiger loach, felt itself to be king of the aquarium at feeding time, having seen off ‘the competition’… fish smaller than itself. Then, it came face to face, for the first time, with a bristlenose plecostamus.
It seemed a little surprised… and did not linger to investigate the ‘monster’.
Ironically, the pleco is the most timid fish in the tank.
