Bristlenose Question!
 
In the 'Fish Profile' for Bristlenose Pleco's, it says the minimum tank suggestions are...... 10 gallon for 1 and 15-20 for a pair. I was just wondering whether this means a whole tank for just the pair, or accompanied with other fish.

Thank you :D

you can usually have more fish with them, though being plecos i wouldn't get any more bottom feeders.

Thanks :)

IMO 29 gals is the minimum for BN's and similar sized plecos. :)
