My first pair of bristle nose were both regulars and I had about 19 albino fry and 30-40 regular ones. My next pair didn't have any albinos but 4 of them had white spots and were black! Looks like little starlights.

Someone has said that before, and they do look similar. I think the female is a standard Bn pleco. If it is a gold nugget pleco I got her for about $7!

Holy cow!! If they are gold nuggets then they would sell for $40-60 bucks once they get bigger. Maybe you could post some photos of the adults?

I'll post some pics soon. I now have multiple generations in my tank! No albinos that I can tell but I saw them in the act of breeding last night so maybe this batch.

Here are a couple of pics. The little ones are first or second generation. I couldn't get any photos of smaller ones. I also put in a pic of the Albino papa guarding the latest batch of eggs.

Very cool. My clown pleco is starting to come out of it's shyness. I see it almost every day now.

That's really cool, plecos have definite personalities. The albino in the pic above will take algae wafers from my fingers.
