Well, I guess I better introduce myself.
I'm Kelsey and I've been into the fish-keeping hobby for about 7 years now. Some things I love doing in aquariums are biotope tanks (by continent for now) and planted tanks.
I've never kept Bristlenose plecos before (but have wanted to for years), so I'm really excited to be finally taking this step. My LFS regularly stocks common BNs and someone that lives about 45 minutes away breeds L-144s. I'll be starting off with the common BNs and after that, see about getting a hold of some L-144s.
This site has been amazingly helpful!! I've been trying to find one place to get all my BN info and this is perfect! Now I'm off to read some more threads....
