They're not algae eaters, thought hey should have some veggie content in their diet. I feed all my fish NLS pellets as the staple diet, occasionally spirulina flake, and once weekly canned green beans or frozen bloodworms.
Wow! You have 15 of these gorgeous fishes?! That is so cool. Are they in the same tank?

Ya, they're growing out in a 40 breeder with a load of BN pleco's. Tank is loaded with driftwood and Najas, so I rarely see them, but occasionally a couple are visible around feeding time.
Not as slow-growing as Hypancistrus, I have 6 L-333's I picked up a couple years ago that look just about mature enough to spawn now.
The BN grow much faster, about 8-9 months from hatching to spawning size.

Visibility is limited, need to thin the Najas:

Had some in a 75 early last year before I moved them into the 40 and added more juvies:

Between 2-3", young juvies. The albino BN in the first pic was around 1" at the time.

The pattern is starting to break up a bit, will most likely become quite a bit more irregular as the fish grows more. Why does it look green though?

The picture was taken with an iphone. Must be the poor lighting or something. He looks normal in person
