    Hello All: By now you know me for the most part. I really would like 2 bristlenose pleco's for in my 55 gallon planted tank to keep up with the algae. Sadly I can not find anything I mean I found on aquabid but it keeps saying my password is wrong but it isn't so I sent out an email. ANYWAY!!! I was wondering if anyone had some bristlenose pleco's that they were willing to sell. I mean like baby plecos that you want to sell. P.S. I had no clue how to post in the buy in sell forum so I figured I would post it here in hopes the mods would find it and move it. :D

    my two favorites in my life.

    Their knowledge is reputable but I have never had the opportunity to buy from them. I was seriously thinking about it for a breed of cichlid they had but currently am in the state of moving so cant add on.

    Two things.
    Bristle nose or any other pleco eat algae when young. They're hungry. As they age they will eat less algae and go after food. They are not going to clean your tank for you. They will help, but you're responsible for what they don't eat. BN plecos need foods other than algae. Algae wafers are great for them, but it's because the first ingredient is fish meal.
    Zucchini, cucumber, yams are all good easy to feed veggies that all ages will go for. Sinking earthworm sticks are a great supplement.

    The other thing, is get several not just two. I suggest long fin if you don't keep fin nippers, as they look more elegant in the tank.

    +1 to dbosemans post above, All relevant points.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
