  1.5" Longfin Red Bristlenose -  $29.75

These are a nice orange pleco (I have no idea how someone ever named them "super red", but they did and it stuck). Even so, they are distinctly more orange than Albino types. These do tend to get a bit of brown speckling creeping in as they get older.  Reds grow quite slowly, so it takes a bit more time to get them to selling size.   If you cross a longfin with a standard you will get approximately 50% longfin in the offspring.

Super Red Bristlenose Pair - (1 longfin)  $159.95

You will receive one male and one female. One will be a longfin. The other will be a standard fin. Longfin is dominant, so at least 50% of offspring will be longfin. They may have not actually bred with each other, but with bristlenose, any male will accept any female.

These are cave-spawners. If given a tank to themselves and ample food, they are fairly easy to breed. Males can be aggressive towards each other, so one breeding pair per tank is best. They are not vegetarians. They are omnivorous and need plenty of protein in their diet. We start them on algae wafers and our Fry Starter formulas. They also love to chew on driftwood, making it a good idea to include some in their tank.
