Well, I did it. Went out and bought some more plecs. :D I was going to get my hands on an albino plec but my lfs has been having problems getting them from their supplier. Sooo...

...I got sick of waiting and picked up a pair of Bristlenoses instead. :p I believe both are females as (I think) that was all they had, but I'm not sure...the one guy has been hiding out since I got him home. They are soooo adorable! :wub: They immediately settled right into their new home, my 25 gallon.

I have had a peice of driftwood soaking for a while now as well, so I put that in my 25 my 25 is now getting a makeover. It's not finished yet, but when it is, you will all get to see the final result. :nod:

Anyways, enough of my babbling...on with the plecs! :D

Just look at that cute little face! :wub:

Those are some nice pics :nod: I wish i could find some bristlenoses here. They are IMPOSSIBLE to find around here!!! :grr:

Wow, that sucks. :sad: We have a fairly good abundance here. The lfs I got these two at, had a tank full of them. It was so hard to choose which ones I wanted. :nod:

I'm really starting to like these guys alot. I've never kept Bristlenoses before, but man are they little characters. Very busy little plecs. :wub:
i third the nom !!!!!

u cant find em :eek: down here they sell them at lps!
Very cute pics. I love Bristlies :)

Dang, there are at least 2 people in my local Betta club that are also breeding Bristlenoses, they both have Bristlies coming out of their noses <pun intended> haha.

:D, just bought my first bristlenose about 20 minutes ago :D there so damn cool!

I need to figure out how to take pictures of fish on my camera, as its not going to well.
Thanks for the comments everyone and for the noms! :wub: :wub:

shrks1fan - I think I'm going to try to find a male once I get my Clown Loaches moved out of the tank. I think I'd like to try my hand at breeding them...I hear it's not very hard. :nod:

corrosive - When you do figure out your camera, post pics of your Bristlenose! I wanna see him! :wub:
