    Ok so I got an albino BN from my friend who was quitting the hobby a few days ago. They do a good job sucking algae off the walls! The SAEs do also but they don't really have sucker mouths. So now I'm finally joining the pleco bandwagon...
    So much that I got a very tiny BN pleco from PetSmart last night! I have a feeling the store just got him within the previous week and feared for his life (that he might get eaten). Right now he's in growing out in a 2.5. Will post pics when he comes out of hiding.

    Good luck with your new pleco! Can't wait to see the pictures! :D

    Congrats you will be off to the store with the rest of us browsing the vegetable isle for fresh veggies for your new babies. They are great fish. And to let you know, there is plenty of room on the pleco band wagon. Alison

    Nice! Have you gotten names for those plecos?
  5. Dom90Fishlore VIPMember

    Lol no, I dont name my fish. Btw, plecos dont really creep us out like snails so it's the better choice.

    Is the ABN a male or female ? How big is the other little plec that you bought? Alison
  7. Dom90Fishlore VIPMember

    I dont really know what sex they are, they're so small and like they're hiding all the time. The one I bought last night is probably less than 0.5 inches..

    Oh my goodness, they are just babies. You should take pictures once a month to see how they change and grow. Alison

    I love BNs because they're not only cute as juvies but also cute as adults :)

    Currently breeding: h/b purple guppies

    I might need to join you on the pleco bandwagon... Got nerite snails today and one of the kribs keep trying to eat it. :(

    SO CUTE! I love BN :)

    I told you! I wasn't a believer at first but now I am! Seems your kribs want to munch on everything... Now they're highly suspect for the murder of some Amano shrimps lol.

    Yeah I think so too. No sight of the Amanos for a week now.

    Probably one of each once they get big enough.

    Ok so I noticed he's not really eating.. I dropped a small pea yesterday and it's still sitting there. So this morning I broke up a veggie round and still no luck.
