View Full Version : Bristlenose Plecos and there babies

12-22-2015, 01:32 AM
As per requested on another forum topic, I am posting a few pictures of the plecos I have that ended up having babies. I live in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada and many of our local fish stores say its something about the water here that these plecos just love and they breed like crazy. Is it rare for these Bristlenose plecos to breed often. hope everyone enjoys these pictures, and you may have to play find the pleco wit some of the pictures but I promise there will be at least one baby in every pic. Tanks again and Enjoy 44565 4456644567 Daddy Tail is sticking out of the barrel 44568 44569

I want to take them all home with me.

Pickles, my BNP, was about that big when I picked him up from Dallas. ...Now he's easily over three inches.

Congrats on the fry. I found them quite easy to breed - in fact, too easy. At one point I had a 2nd batch before the first batch was large enough to bring to my LFS. They're really cute and it was fun for a while. I now have just one male BNP in one tank after selling all of my others.

Congrats on your little bushies. Like Sue I found then very easy to breed when I had a male and female-had over 80 at one time and no interest and no LFS that would do anything other than "take them off my hands" for nothing...which is what I wound up having to do after 6 months and no interest from anyone in purchasing them for $3. Just have my male albino (Ghost) right now.

Congratulations! My BNP just passed away recently from an internal parasite. But it's great to see that yours are doing so well, I can't wait to get one again. Just waiting for my LFS to get some in!
