PostSubject: My first ever Bristlenose!   Tue Oct 16, 2012 5:16 am

Very Happy got my first ever Bristlenose today!! Very excited!!
The shop keeper was nice enough to give me a small piece of driftwood for free, as i didn't have any at the moment. He said he will get some next weekend, so i might drop by next weekend to get some for the little fella.

My first little Bristlenose, he/she is about 5cms big. I only got a Common Bristlenose, since i have no experience in keeping one before, so i decided to go for a cheap one (cost me $10 AUS) and gain some experience first before going for the nice, fancy, and expensive ones.





What do you guys think?

he also had other plecos like L33, clown plecos and leopard plecos, he had more but i couldn't remember all the names. Out of the L33 and clown pleco, which one does a better job at cleaning algae? If this one goes well i might buy one of those... but i'm not an expert. ?

Both of those plecos you mentioned are hypans and are more predatory in nature. They prefer a good combo if high protein foods and algae based foods.

For cleaning algae you simply can not go past the good old common bristlenose Very Happy
