55 gallon pleco species/stock advice
 
i am in need of a pleco but i can not choose the right one for me. i am looking for examples of some good plecos or other bottom feeders and any suggestions for another tank mate for my 6 giant danios and my green severum.

Bristlenose pleco is always a fine addition, albinos look nice as well but maybe avoid the long fin versions

yes the brisltlenose is one of my top contenders. Is there a different species call a bushy nose pleco?

Same species just 2 common names that mean the same thing, bushy bristly its still pointy things.

Great choice, i have a BN Pleco, great! just ensure you have a good lid on your tank!
i have a small tank, right beside my large tank and i got a fright one day to see my BNPleco in the small tank, then a hour later bck in the large one!!! i have a good lid now!!! :)
