More than one pleco?
I've always heard that only one pleco should be kept in a tank at a time. I have a 75g and want to combine it with my 30g, but I have a bristlenose in each. On aqadvisor, two pleco in a tank seemed okay.
Any experience in this area?
Adult's of this species, sometimes squabble for resting area's, food's,and may be a bit rough if two males, so providing places for each is needed.
I have found that in tank's smaller than 30 gal,,that one Pleco is better.
Thanks 1077. They are both on the shy side as many plecos are, but I noticed that since I added six synodontis petricola to my 30 g with my older bristlenose, he has gotten a little more defensive with food (which is a good thing lol). But they are still tiny so they should manage. It's a heavily planted tank, too so that should offer lots of hiding spots in addition to the wood and stones.
