Bristlenose Pleco temp??
I'm planning on buying 2 German Blue Rams. I'd like to get a small algae eater, and see the profile says the BP can go up to 81 degrees, but I'm setting the temp for 82 for my German Rams. Will this work to get this type of Pleco? If I attempted to breed the German Rams, I'd even raise the temp up to 84, but could move the Pleco to my other tank during that time if need be. Anyone has these with German Blue Rams and had success? Thanks
Bristlenose would prefer cooler water, Eighty degrees is near upper extreme for this fish .
Once drew the ire of some Discus keeper's when I suggested that they give same consideration to tank mates that they often place in their warm water tanks, that they do their Discus, (ie) cory's, tetra's , plecos.
German blue rams enjoy and seem to do best in soft acidic water, a bit on the warm side of 80 degrees F.
Higher temps are a bit too warm for many tetra's, cory's, and some plecos but it doesn't always matter to some.:|
Not sayin you are one of these ,,just sayin.
