    Default Let's see your BN plecos!

    I've always been intrigued by these plecos, as common as they are, they are great little plecos to keep. They eat algae, don't grow passed 5.5 inches, are pretty docile but can still hold their own. They are very easy to breed, they have a bioload, but not as much as larger plecos. The male grows this impressive bristle snout, almost looks alien to me, let's see some pics of your BN plecos!

    It might help to sex these fish for somebody who is curious, so if you could include your plecos age, that would be helpful.

    I'll start this thread off with a pic of my 4 year old female brown pleco.

    She is in a 90g with another brown female and a brown male pleco. Both females breed with the male.

    Since I just posted a pic of the large brown male I had in another thread, I'll post a belly pic here of the male albino I had that was breeding with a brown female. Both of these have since been sold. I've also posted a pic of some of the baby BNP's I had (a little fuzzy).

    Wow Sue, he has a huge belly! Biggest pleco belly I've ever seen actually. Nice very long bristles on him too! Those babies are so cute, they look to be albino, were they?

    A pic of Blondie, my female albino BNP, in the 29G tank.

    I have another female BNP (L183) in the 40B, but she's very hard to get a pic of, hides most of the time...Blondie never hides

    Hahaha, I'm pretty sure it was my plecos that dug at my underwater/underground cave, they dug new doors and collapsed the rocks holding the substrate back. I was told female amano shrimp dig, but I'm pretty sure it was the plecos. Lol, just like a cichlid.
