Welcome Mike Nugget to the Fishtank
So yesterday I welcomed Mike Nugget to the fishtank. He's a Gold Nugget Plecostomus. My Sister wants to dismantle the fishtank in her room, and Mike was the last fish in there. Actually, she always called him Nugget. But I thought he should have a first name. To be honest, I was watching football, and Bengals kicker Mike Nugent (not to be confused with Nugget) was mentioned. So I saw that as the perfect sign to name Nugget, Mike Nugget.
Despite Mike's small size, he is at least eight years old. Since he has lived most of his life in a 20 gallon tank, he never grew that big. But the tank he is in now is 46 gallon so he has plenty of room to grow. Not to mention he will have plenty of friends. He will have Big Joe the 6th, (he's a common Pleco,) and a number of Loaches.
In his old tank Mike tended to hide quite a bit. However, he has actually spent some time in the open while eating algae in the new tank. That's how I got all these pictures of him.
Speaking of pictures, here are a few more of Mike. I hope he likes his new home.
