This is Boris.

When we first got our tank with a few Danios, I wanted a pleco. I didn't know what they were actually called. I just like the "sucker fish," as I called them. We got two of them. Wee little things, not quite two inches long. They were different enough to tell them apart, so we named them. Boris and Allister.

Then Boris ate Alistair.

Little by little, he ate our snails, too, though that took quite a bit more effort on his part.

He's now 10 inches long.

Did you know plecos blink?

Did you know they can get this big?
