Bristlenose pleco babies

Aren't they cute?!?! just got 16 babies for 15$. Super excited!! Lady had awesome discus tank and her son a planted tank with shrimp and these babies. They are either long finned , white or golden.... She's got a few, not sure who mother was. Time shall tell. I just need to pick up some wood for them. They will go in the 140 gal mbuna juvie tank once they grow some to grow out

Awesome Plecos. I want to breed them someday. It doesn't seem that hard because I think they will start eating algae wafers when born. Not sure though.

Idk these are my first. Being out of work I couldn't afford any. Saw an add for these lil guys at $1 a piece.... Talked my hubby into it maybe they will breed... Everything else I have does, lol. I'm just happy I can now get rid of my high bio load commons. with exception of our big guy.... My son won't let go of him....

They will be going between 5 tanks. Possibly 6. Once they grow more.

My commons are super poopers, all but one are totally boring. I've always loved these lil guys. Hoping some will be long fin, but they are way to tiny to tell anything.

I dunno, this is my first go at it. They are in a 10 g right now with a seeded fluval 205 with a sponge on the end. Once they get a lil bigger they are going in my 140 g mbuna juvie tank to grow out then separate them between all my tanks. Fingers crossed they all make it fed algae/spir wafer am then green bean pm.
