Just found my albino scaling a branch on a piece of wood in my tank. Really funny to watch as she was sort of shimmying up it like a mast!

(excuse the terrible photo. Hideous amount of reflection!)

Better to be safe than sorry isn't it.

Cool photo, my male is not very active at all during the day. I need to make him some more hiding spots.

The only problem I have with BN's is they cost an arm and a leg compared to my other fish. I paid $15 for mine.

Cheers. I get so much reflection during the day, it male photos real difficult. I paid £15 each for mine, but over here they are amongst the less expensive Pleco.

My LFS has a golden nugget & a magnum which are £95 & £65 respectively. Zebra's go for between £75-£150. Serious money, but I am really tempted to look into a Zebra

I see this is a male, because its bristles .. I mean, I am not a professional or anything, but as far as I know, only men on their entire face of the brush. While women only his lips near the bristles...

I saw a very lovely sunshine pleco in a magazine the other day.. can honestly say I'd never seen them before. I'd love one, but can barely get bristlenose around here, even! I looked up the sunshine and they go for about $60! Good lord!

A new pic of one of my BN Pleco.

Just the most lovely fish. I think I'm turning into a real Pleco addict
