Babies ! Albino Bristlenose Plecos
 
We have babies! Papa is a longfin but I don't think momma is. She may not even be a bristlenose. Maybe someone here can identify her type? These videos aren't the best quality and are rather long, but if you're into watching babies, they may interest you. :-D

I'll have better video later without that ugly blue light. Question is...what am I going to do with all of them?????

There are about twenty. It's hard to count them. Every time I think I've got a tally, I spot another one somewhere.

Could you tell what type of Pleco the mother is? I don't think she is a bristlenose unless females don't have bristles....
:roll:

He's a character but the momma is personality + -- I only have the one tank.. Don't know what I'm gonna do with all of them! If they would get along I'd keep them all, but I hear the males are territorial.

Don't know what size the male is ..do you measure from nose to where the tail starts or all the way to the end of the tail? Without the tail he is about 4 inches.

Thanks! I plan to make more as they grow. Boring to many I know (my husband in particular), but this is all new to me... :-D

I think nose to tail you measure...sounds like a big fishy! How big is your tank? I think you can sell them to fish stores...but i dunno...maybe see if there is an aquarium or fish club in your area....i know theres a bunch around here...just a thought lol.

Female BNs don't generally have bristles like the males. It looks like you've got a female.

Well, nose to tail I'd guess he's about 6-7 inches. I've got a 46 gallon but it's a bowfront, so there is less bottom area than a rectangle. I guess Petco or PetSmart might buy them, but I hate the thought of that. Never thought of looking up a fish club - thank you for suggestion!!! At least I'll know they won't go to some kid with his/her first aquarium and die. :evil:
