    Temporary housing for bristlenose pleco

    So I got a bristlenose pleco from a store several hours away. I have it now so no returning it or anything and I’m already in love. I have a 5 gallon tank with a super chill male betta in it. It is fully cycled and my tests have been pretty consistent so I went to the store to get a snail or...

    Suddenly obsessed with this little female betta

    I've been wanting a red male betta for the past few months and finally set myself to the task of preparing for one. Lots of reading and a 20 gallon tank later and I found myself searching through three different pet stores, but none of the betta were calling out to me. I ended up going home with...

    Bristle nose pleco?

    Heya, me again! The hubs and I are really worried that our lfs sold us a different kinds of plecos instead of a bristle nose. They are very young, ~2 inches, and the hubs says they could be both female so we wouldn't see the big bristles, but I'm not convinced. The pictures aren't the greatest...

    pleco fish bred and I don't know what to do..

    So today I was cleaning out my canister filter when I later realized that there was pleco fry on the glass. Anyway, I scooped as many as I saw up and placed them in one of those breeding boxes you put guppies in (which I've bred in the past). Now, as you'll know, breeding guppies and pleco's...

    What to feed my Plecos who won't eat green things

    Hello all, I have one albino bristlenose pleco (4 in) and one (possibly) zebra pleco (3 in). 20-gallon tank. I didn't buy them so I'm not completely sure about the second one. They have grown quite a bit since I got them and their fins seem much healthier, but they are quite sluggish even though...

    Plecs nipped fins

    Have an Albino Longfin Bristlenose Pleco, female and she is stunning, she’s about 5 inches long. Pretty sure when we got her her fins weren’t quite what they are now. She always used to stay in one place when the light was on and roam around of the night (light off) as usual. We started putting...

I will sum it up here after. It also has pictures there and water test results that are around a week old. If needed I can...
