I currenty just purchased a pair of bn's from my lfs. I currently have the pair in my 30gal tank. Eventually they will be in my planted 75gal tank. The female has just laid the eggs a few weeks ago at the lfs. Now she's really thin. How can i fatten her up? How long can these plecos live? Also how much current do they like? Thanks for your help and any other tips on keeping these guys healthy for a long time.
