    Welcome to the forum

    I have one of each in my 90, with kuhli loaches - no worries there. Either will do well in your tank. I find the BN pleco to be more active than the RN pleco.

    Thank you for the welcome Jaysee :). Is Spotted Ancistrus pleco the same as a BN? its hard to tell some times because one fish may have so many names.

    There are at least 50 plecos in the genus ancistrus, which are referred to as bristlenose plecos. Many of them are spotted, so "spotted ancistrus" doesn't help us identify the exact species.
