Hmmm, you could be right. I would have definitely said the Farowella except that the Bristlenose IS always busy on my Red Temple if he's not on the glass. The Farowella, although occasionally...

Yeah, I hear ya. I've always heard that Bristlenose were the most gentle of all of the plecos on your plants, so I was also leaning towards the Farowella. But, I have the same problem that you do. ...
