my bristlenose and the snails love the cucumber and zuchinni. its so funny to watch the pleco eat his veggies. very cute. hopefully your little guy will want to try it!
How do you normally mount (or where do you place) the veggies? My bristlenose never leaves the hardscape in the middle of the tank. Unless he moves at night, he never goes on the substrate. I assume you just need to be creative in ways to keep it attached somewhere?
cute. my pleco (sadly) died about a week ago, but I just recently bought a new one.( lfs said it was a bushynose, but he sure looks like a bristlenose. not sure how much of a difference there is between the two...) He's about twice the size of any I've ever had. If I were to guess his size, I would say he is probably almost 4 inches. I'm hoping he gets bigger, possibly around 6 inches but it sounds like he is probably full grown. Here is a decent picture I got of him two days after I got him.
Here he is! His name is Uncle Bobby. (sorry it's a bit blurry and there are a few water stains on the outside of the tank.)
