Recently I added a couple small bristlenose pleco’s to the aquarium. They are small right now, not quite 2″ in length. Their maximum size is around 6″, which works nicely – I definitely didn’t want a common pleco, which can grow over a foot long!
They are very good at staying hidden, but this evening for the first time I saw both of them out for a little while at the same time 🙂
The current residents of the aquarium:
- 4 Denison barbs (or indian flasher barbs)
- 6 Siamese algae eaters
- 2 Bristlenose plecostomus
- 2 Salt and Pepper corydoras
- 6 Red Phantom tetras
- 6 Black neon tetras
- 6 Neon tetras
- 8 Head and Tail Light tetras
I also added a digital thermometer – much easier to read than the little plastic strip I had stuck on the front glass!
