just got a little guy yesterday and hes on the heater should I take him off
AHHH... thank you I forgot to look.Hi!
It say's in Josh's aquarium info - Common pleco.
I buy them banquet blocks that's algae and wood. Is that not enough? I read that those types of plecos don't necessarily need wood. But I thought id ask here just to be sure.Yes plecos need driftwood in their diet,
Common plecos grow a few feet how large is your tank?
I'm well aware. Thank youI'm not sure if bristlenose absolutely need it, but it can only do good. All information I've heard suggests that the fibres they get from the wood aids with digestion. They also eat diatoms from the surface of the wood. I know my bristlenose loves to sit under the wood and munch/rasp on it all day.
As for the common, I've read that wood is good for them too. Although I hope you are aware they get huge and need a big tank.
I'm not very familiar with species of the common pleco.
