    Opps forgot to update this! Pleco was re-homed to a nearby educational group with large tanks and experience with pleco keeping (in other tanks). Sadly I cannot provide a large final tank for my Leopard Sailfin Pleco (Pterygoplichthys gibbiceps) due to life just generally wrecking plans. He's...

    They're going to be in a 55 gallon tank with plenty of plants for cover. The Albino BN is about 5 inches long. I'm also split between the Sakura Reds and Blue Velvet?!?! Thanks in advance!

    Anyone breeding any Bristlenose Plecos locally? I'd rather not get them from The Wet Spot at $6 a pop

    To begin, Thank you for any advice in advance. I have a well established 75 Gallon planted tank. I had done a major re-scape and in the mean time put my pleco and turtle back into a 20 Gal. They were in the 20 Gal for about 6 days. In the 20 Gal I was only running a Fluval 110 gal HOB filter. I...

    Hi, At the LFS they showed me a BN pleco. Was quite nice, black with the usual white spots. I have never kept these before. What are the things to watch out for in terms of aggression, feeding habbits, territorial nature? Do I need to put in special sinking food for them? Are they veggies...

    I've recently set up what I call a "reduce the number of tanks in the house to make the wife happy, yet still create something cool" tank. It's a 77 gallon dirt tank, somewhat heavily planted. I wanted something that was relatively low maintanance as I coach high school baseball and have a two...

    So I've been waiting eagerly for Halloween to have an excuse to try pumpkin out on my Leopard Sailfin Pleco. I used scraps from pumpkin carving last night, boiled a piece for 1 min in microwave in a cup of water, cool it, then rubber banded it to a rock and plopped it in the tank. My pleco ate...

    Originally had a simular post in the plant section, but I'm thinking this is more appropriate in the fish forum now. As the title says I am trying to figure out plants for a soon-to-be tank that can hopefully withstand a Leopard Sailfin Pleco occasionally munching on or generally crashing...

    Hello, I recently bred my albino bristlenose plecos. Both parents are very nice looking albinos. However all of the fry came out as normal bristlenose which is still very cool but I wasn't expecting this. Not one albino! How long should I wait to move the father back to the main tank? If I spawn...
