My albino (Peach) and super red (Carrot) bristlenose’s had another batch of fry! This would be batch 2. The last one got eaten by the tank mates, I suspect this batch will be too 😬
But here’s the best pic I could take of the baby I saw

Awesome! So cute, I love bristlenose plecos. I have two, one regular spotted brown and one albino, maybe 5-6 months old.

I love them. I have those two, the super red and albino. As well as another albino and a regular brown colored one. I also have a clown and sailfin. I just don’t feel like the tank looks right without a pleco I guess haha.

Agreed! They are the cherry on top. Never had a tank without one. I think they look like a prehistoric shark when they swim slowly through the water. When I was a kid, I had a common pleco in my 75g, eventually it got too tight in there for him at around 8” so he was moved into the backyard goldfish pond which is about 1000g. The SE Texas weather kept him safe and warm. He lived the rest of his life happy and huge, a solid foot long, dark and regal like a dragon. In the aquarium, he would come to the surface upside-down to eat flakes and other goodies, you could literally drop tubifex worms into his suckermouth, it was so cool. He did the same thing in the pond. Fish have such unique personalities and habits.
