I had some requests to make a thread with pictures of my bristlenose plecos, and not just pictures of their excellent cleanup skills. Here are a few I've managed to get over the last few days!

And here is a short video. It gets a little boring at the end there when they both go into hiding and I can find neither of them with the camera. :)

How many do you have, Courtney. BNs are my favorite fish after goldies!

I so love your tank!

I have two--just the two in the video. They are hard to tell apart. :) Thanks for the tank compliment!

Baby plecos are so adorable! :heart I just love watching them scoot around the tank.

Also, are those Riparium supply's planters? If so how do you like them?

They are really fun to watch! And yes, they are the planters from Riparium Supply. I like them a lot, for what they are. I am actually going to put substrate in my tank, though, because I want big plants and these just don't allow enough root room for that. That's not their fault; that's part of the benefits they advertise (keeping plants down to size). They are awesome for barebottom tanks with small to medium plants, though, for sure.

I have exactly the same albino BN as you but mines has a little whiskers which he is a male.

Feed it often with algae wafers, mine almost hasn't grown at all for 8 months so feed them!

so does this mean your trying to ask her to take some more

Nope, I just like seeing the critters and plants I send out in doing well.

Its always nice to see something you've worked on thrive.

Mine have grown quite a bit since I've had them! But they ate a whole tank full of algae last week. I do feel algae wafers and veggies and occasionally they wander onto a goldfish pellet but they LOVE repashy. :D

They are so cute! Your tank is gorgeous! :). And your plants look great.

Thanks, Lisa! I love watching this tank.

Hey, I know those babies!

Thanks for posting this! Always love to see them in their new homes!

Very Happy!

:D

You're welcome! I will undoubtedly post more in the future. Figured you'd like seeing them grow up a bit.

Thanks! I am quite fond of these little guys.

Thank you! I agree. :)

I love the little nose twitching while he was nibbling on the floor :heart

Their little pleco-y movements are neat, and so different from the goldfish!

Very nice pictures.

Thank you, Hidr!
