    got a 55 hex with tons of shrimp, tiger endlers, logs plants a whiptail pleco and these two lovely plecos ^_^

    male and female calico bristlenose plecos!

    the female is really paled out, they are currently acclimating to a new tank she has allot more dark coloring than the pics show.
    they are both around 1 1/2 inch.

    they are cute..iv never really been a fan of them until these two^_^

    a few questions for these guys...with plenty of hiding places will they be fine with a breeding pare of cons in a 29 gallon.

    the cons currently ignore the danios in the tank with them..just chases them an inch or two to get them to move away and stop..even when spawning.

    i would leave them in the 50 hex, a 29 with a pair of cons, these guys will get beat up once the cons have frys.

    the 55 is coming down and being sold i have no room for it.

    before advising about stocking i would move your 4 convicts out of a 10 gallon tank.


    the 29 has lots of rocks and hiding place more logs to be added soon.
