Steve Vinik and his wife frequently see large plecos (plcostomus) rise to the surface of the pond in their backyard, in the Lexington Oaks community in Wesley Chapel. Vinik said the fish appear to be upside down with their mouths open to the air, giving it a ‘creature from the black lagoon’ appearance. Plecos are well-known algae eaters and scavengers, and will eat almost anything. The couple also sees a variety of birds from cardinals to sandhill cranes.
