Hi guys,
I'm not one for impulse buys but walked into a lfs today and walked
out with 2 gold nugget plecs, I just had to have them, stunning fish.
Now I'm a newbi to plecs so need advice on what to feed them, can
I feed them the same diet as my bn's?

Steven

they prefer a higher amount of protein than bristlenose like most hypans. few extra bloodworms will do the trick Smile

Hi Steven,i suggest you do plenty of research on the internet about them,there is quite a bit of information about golden nuggets out there.They like a warmer temp and a slightly different diet and they have been known to starve in captivity.They like a very good oxygen level and water movement.Just a little info i can remember about them.

All the best

Bristlenoses Very Happy
