    Bristlenose Pleco prefers to hide behind filter intake and sponge, but not the caves??

    Wow thanks for the awesome website! But yeah the white ones are a bit harder to find. My only king tiger is yellow as well, this was before I knew there were 2 color strains (my LFS said it would turn white later on, but it looked white in the lfs, so maybe it's my water??) I'll definitely look...

    Bristlenose Pleco prefers to hide behind filter intake and sponge, but not the caves??

    Yeah, shipping would been cumbersome for me if I were to order fish from the other coast too, especially since I heard some store online had L-333 and other Rio Xingu fish, but shipping really was too much to justify the price of the fish. Anyways, I'll let you know in the future how my...

    I ordered them online, shipping wasn't too bad for overnight since I live in California. I did however request to get larger specimens, but they ran out when I had ordered :( L-204 flash plecos look so cool! It reminds me when I went to a chain pet store and they had mislabeled a candy stripe...

    Ah I see, yeah I decided to put the starlights in with my discus since the water condition and specs are almost close to black water. Yeah wild discus are a mixed bag haha, they're fine one day and the next they just go belly up. I've only been able to successfully keep 3 from a batch of 7...

    Oh, they only had wild L183 available, I would have gone for tank bred specimens, but none were available at the moment. Are there major differences between tank bred and wilds besides water conditions? Also I purchased these little fellas from the Wetspot Tropicals.

    Yea, I've only had them for 2 days in total. I guess I should give them more time.

    Yep they are wild caught, maybe I'll try to give them more flow. I went ahead and purchased a wave maker to give more flow, I don't know iff I should add more wood since they are in with discus and they might be too scared to come out since the fish are so big?? I just got the rep[ashy food...

    Yup it already sunk yesterday since I have access to lead weight alloys, I mainly boiled them to get them sterilized and weaken the wood a bit, since I want tannins in the water for my discus

    Ah I see, okay, at this point I think I'll just keep them in the tank since I want a little bit of tannins and I only boiled and let them soak in a bucket to get them to sink.

    Hi guys and gals of fishlore! Recently I just got my hands on 2 wild bristle nose starlight places L183, Before I added them to the tank I purchased multiple cholla woods and driftwood. I went ahead and started treating the wood and cleaning it, and let in soak in my bucket fo0r an additional...

    I ended up just getting a new one, I thought the pump got better since I unplugged it and let it cool down. It worked fine for an hour then totally gave up. So I just bought the whisper 60 air pump

    Tetra Whisper 40 Urgent Help Plz!

    Hey guys and gals of the fish hobby! I just recently came home and my air pump was not working at all/barely even working. I checked it out and cleaned the small filter pad thingy under the air pump but it’s barely working. Usually there is a burst of bubbles coming out, but now it’s gust a slow...

    Thank you so much! Yeah I’ll probably stick to overfeeding then doing a quick gravel vac on the bottom of the tank. Thanks again for the suggestion
