what has the pleco been eating? Depending on the diet of mine, their intestine can appear darker or lighter. DLJ

Peas worked, did a nice big poo, but what I am more concerned about is the darker orange/ red coloured area just below his mouth. It just seems to be getting darker and darker. Problem Or no worries? 3621428690

the darker red area is normal as far as i know all of my albino trio have spots of red, the male has the most. He has a big red spot like the one in the pic right on the top of his head. DLJ

This is an older pic and the red has darkened recently

I would not worry to much. I think you are just seeing your fish maturing.
With Albinos it can be a little more emphasised as you are seeing the true colour of the flesh so to speak in all its glory without pigmentation getting in the way.
Marty cheers

Ok, cool thanks everyone.
I admit to being more than a little obsessed with this guy, so I don't want anything to go wrong!

Howdy;
It is good to be a little bit extra concerned then having something creep up on you.
But I find that Bristlenoses are pretty tough and forgiving.
As long as they get fed and don't get to stressed out by tankmates there are pretty cool little buggers with a face you just have to love. Problem Or no worries? 1650918589

I've been wondering if the "blush" on the BN's is due to being sexually receptive ? or mature ? Seems to be more noticeable on the males. Not sure if I'm wording this right : ) Help me out Doug LOL
