I bought 2 Bristle nose plecos two days ago and both cats are going NUTS over them. I think they like the way they swim sparatically in the water and don't gain ground well. I also forgot to mention that i painted the back of my tank black because it seemed thats how most of the beautiful aquariums look. on my 29 gallon i painted it blue and liked it but I think most of my discus don't really pop on that type of a background. I'm hoping this black background helps their color. I have also found that the plants had a few snails and now they are EVERYWHERE in my 72. its kinda funny cus i went through trouble to desnail my other tank and now here they are again.

I was also wondering if that by not growing alge in my tank if that is good or bad. i was wondering if that meant i don't have enough light or enought nutrients or am i just lucky cus i used eco complete to ward off the attack. hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!
