Baby albino bristlenose pleco...

He is like maybe 2in long tip to tip...dunno if he is a baby or what...but the last two days I noticed one of his pectoral (side fins lol) is like blood red...it's weird...

Google wasn't any help cause I don't know what I'm lookin for but yeah...

Is it something that's a problem or is it just him? I don't wanna lose the lil guy (pretty sure it's a female tho lol)

Any help is much appreciated...

The only red part is the like bone portion? It's not the translucent fin part...

What size tank and what else is in it? Is the tank cycled? Is there anything in the tank that he could have snagged his fin on? What are your parameters?

Is the tank cycled? I did a fish IN cycle and stats seemed stable when i added her.

Is there anything in the tank that he could have snagged his fin on? I dont think so...im using eco complete, it does look kinda sharp...


What are your parameters? As far as water...0am, 0no2, 10-20ppm no3
I think I answered them right...on the cell phone...

It does look nasty for sure. Your parameters seem pretty stable. I`d start with a 50% water change and if you have some, melafix and pimafix.
