Just got a pleco any tips?
hi i just got back from my lfs adding a pleco to my 40 gallon aquarium cause i have a a little algae just wondering if anyone with plecos has any guiding words to a first time owner
You couldn't get an easier fish to take care of. They will eat flakes so no need to buy special algae wafers or other foods, even though they are a tasty treat. Mine also loves shrimp pellets. They do poop alot, and grow very rapidly.
What kind of plecostomus? Dwarf? Common?
just a common one
Uh oh...common plecos get BIG. Like two feet long big. Plus, they stop eating your algae when they get older. I'd recommend exchanging him for a bristle nose pleco, unless you plan on a major tank upgrade soon :)
yea it is a a bristle nose albino so idk they say about 7 in
Do you have any driftwood in your tank? They need wood in their diet.
yes i do have a have 2 things of drift food for him
Albinos grow smaller than the standard ones- I wouldn't expect him to grow more than 4 inches, so you're all set there.
yea i deff dont want anything to big
