Bristle Nose and Acrylic Tanks
Came across postings lately about Pleco's and Acrylic tanks. Is it possible for a BN to chew up or scratch up the inside of the tank? I don't want mine to get harmed from doing so, and would love to hear from the BN keepers out there on this.

I've had mine in an acrylic tank for over a year now. No problems for him or the tank. Acrylic may not be as hard as glass, but it's not like it's butter either.
75 gallon community tank: tetras, danios, corys, platies, otos, pearl gouramis, bristlenose pleco, assassin snails, red cherry shrimp, bamboo shrimp
70 gallon growout tank: clown loaches, sailfin pleco
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
29 gallon frog tank: 1 bullfrog
10 gallon and 5.5 gallon betta tanks: 1 male betta each, sometimes snails

Was thinking the statement about them was bogus. Came across it, while looking for any other algae eaters I haven't seen before. I've only had them for like a week. It's a pair of 2"ers, so when I saw this; was thinking if true--why I wasn't warned. I got them from someone who knows I have acrylic.
