Plecos are like little monsters - but they are great at helping keep a tank clean of algae and leftover food. They're ugly but have personality and uniqueness. Perhaps in the near future , I will run a Fish of the Month contest featuring Plecos -- there are some really colorful and interesting Plecos.
Meanwhile we are still accepting entries for our present Fish of the Month contest which is featuring all types of Tetras. If you have Tetras, we hope you enter the contest.
Fish of the Month :big_boss: PLEASE VOTE! We have 6 awesome Tetras entered into June's 2021 Fish of the Month Contest. View all the entries and descriptions below and then go to the top of page - click on your choice for FOTM and then click the "cast" button. Please DO NOT post any comments...
I chose ugly-cute, but I think what they really are is so bizarre looking that it becomes fascinating. My Bristlenose is a female (fewer bristles) albino (doesn't camouflage, so I can actually spot her) longfin (more graceful as she moves), and all of those traits help too.
I've mainly had yellow/blue eyed bristlenoses (I have 6 of various ages). This group seems comfortable enough that they don't need to hide all day. If I come up to the tank they all come out from where ever they are and look like a bunch of bulldogs that are very happy to see me. I love them dearly. And so peaceful. They do, however, seem to poop as much as they clean up. Even a baby kitten is not as cute as a baby bristlenose.
