Conditioning and feeding BN
I finally got 2 BN pleco, one is about 5 inches, one is about 3 inches. I know what they eat but how much do they need to be healthy? The smaller one was in the tank for 2 weeks and did little to control the algae. I put the larger one in there 3 days ago and the algae is gone. I gave them a piece of zucchini today to see how hungry they were and they are chomping at it regularly. Am I feeding enough and do they have a problem with low amounts of food an health? There is a large piece of driftwood in the tank so that is taken care of.
Is there a specific food that is used to condition them for breeding and for growth? I have never tried to spawn them, I know the ages are off but if I can get a similar size female soon, I will need to order the food if there is anything special to condition them.
