About My Fish
  • Parent fish are unrelated and a mature pair (Male is 6"+). I originally purchased them as my algae team for my planted aquariums.
  • Plecos are 12-14 months old and sexually mature but are not yet proven breeders. I do have siblings from this group that are already breeding. Provided with the right conditions and they can start breeding in 3-4 months or sooner
  • Guaranteed pair - I don't mix too many different ages of super reds in my grow-out tanks. This ensures that I can reliably determine the age of my fish. You won't get sleeper males from my pairs.
  • Males are 2.5" to 3"+ and females are 2" to 2.5" in size. My policy is to sell and ship the biggest fish first! Please also look at my photo on how I determine my females.


Bristlenose plecos are not very picky eaters but I provide them with quality food. The main foods listed are my go-to food for my plecos but other food can be introduced by gradually feeding it to them. Other listed foods are given as a snack or treat (twice or once a week). This ensures the fish have a varied diet.

  • Repashy Soilent Green (Main food)
  • Zucchini (Main food) - washed with hot water and peeled
  • Fluval Pleco Bug Bites (Main food)
  • Hikari Algae Wafers
  • Repashy Bottom Scratcher
  • Frozen Blood worms
  • Frozen Brine Shrimp

My fish also have access to driftwood that they rasp on. This is beneficial in providing a good amount of fiber to their diet.
