    BN that size wouldn't have bristles yet, pretty well all pleco's of any type have the same number of fins. Only other suckermouth that comes to mind are Sewellia, usually called hillstream loaches or...

    Use a pair of needlenose pliers to pull out/replace the impeller shaft, it sits in a rubber bushing at the bottom of the well. If the shaft is worn down it will need to be replaced, not too uncommon...

    Long flowing fins sounds like a longfin bristlenose to me, try google for images and see if that's it.
    As for misnamed or improper ID's on fish, I once picked up a baby electric catfish (pretty...

    Dempseys grow a bit too large for a 55, really should be housed in at least a 75. A blue acara or firemouth would be a better fit with a redtail shark. A group of dwarf chain loaches would be good...

    I only use sponges in my aquaclears, 3 in the 70's and 2 in the 110's. Carbon isn't necessary (or even particularly useful) for normal maintenance, and sponges collect debris as well as providing...

    That's true of any potentially invasive species, but only if it can survive in the new environment. "Tropical" fish like piranha (and all tetras for that matter) wouldn't make it through the first...

    Hmm, I live in MD, only about 10 minutes from WV, I could make a killing running bootleg fish across the border... LOL.

    Never bred them in an aquarium, and can't say why a female turned up dead, but I kept them in the backyard pond at my last house for years to eat mosquito larvae. They spawned every spring, and from...

    Actually, Amazon swords and Hygro aren't true aquatic plants. They will grow in an aquarium w/out high light and CO2, but they will also grow emersed.

    Those are kubotai, the juvie pattern looks completely different from the adults, and there's a transition period between them. Essentially the dark bands grow wider and connect together, which...

    The position of the mouth indicates a bottom feeder, so barbs are a likely possibility.

    Any mid-water fish will eat baby shrimp, Cory cats shouldn't bother them. Given enough plants/cover some baby shrimp may live long enough to grow out, or you could set up a 10 gallon with sponge...

    I like Colombian tetras, they're fine with plastic plants, will eat real ones. Bleeding hearts also grow to a decent size.

    I picked up a couple of used 75's with a custom built metal stand some years ago. I don't use the stand the same way, not much access space above the lower tank if you put 2 75's on the stand, but a...

    Goldfish really do belong in a pond, not a tank. Isn't there something you could put out at/by the pond to keep critters away? If all else fails, set up another tank, less expensive than a pond...

    The common BN are usually all you'll find in most lfs, particularly the large chains. Occasionally you can find WC imports online, but IMO the best bet is to get F1 or later tank-bred generations....

    Tropheus need a big tank and at least 10 of the buggers to keep them from killing each other. The duboise lose the starry night pattern as they mature, adults aren't nearly as good looking.
