Bristlenose Question!

In the 'Fish Profile' for Bristlenose Pleco's, it says the minimum tank suggestions are...... 10 gallon for 1 and 15-20 for a pair. I was just wondering whether this means a whole tank for just the pair, or accompanied with other fish.

Thank you :D

you can usually have more fish with them, though being plecos i wouldn't get any more bottom feeders.

**I freely admit that most of the information I share I have learned from other people on this forum and am simply repeating. I thank you for sharing your knowledge and ask that if I say anything incorrect someone will kindly correct me**

IMO 29 gals is the minimum for BN's and similar sized plecos. :)
