    I've got a bristlenose pleco that is 2.5 inches that was fine with my 1 inch krib fry. Will it be fine with my other fry that are 1/4 of an inch and smaller.

    You are relatively new to Fishlore, let me take a moment to say WELCOME.:D

    I would say if he was fine with your last fry, he'll be okay with the new fry. Has the BN pleco grown any? I would keep a watchful eye out at first though. If your Pleco has grown substantially, I would really keep and eye out or transfer the fry somewhere else.:;jaws

    Your fry will be safe living with your BN. I have BN with my breeding guppies and the guppy fry swim in the BN's bristles and neither is bothered by the other. The BN may eat the dead fry if any die but otherwise they don't go after healthy fry.
