Super Red Bristlenose Ancistrus
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

Super Red Breeders
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

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.

|received may 1 alive and frisky, but didn't seem
interested in spawning. then I replaced the flowerpots
with pleco caves from angels plus, and they
couldn't wait to start crawling over each other to
get into the cave to mate. Now I have quite a few fry
crawling around, already showing a strong orange color.|

job. Very caring, and responsible! Customer forever! |

|I received the 8 Super Red Bristlenose Ancistrus today
via FedEx. The packing of the fish was first rate, not
a drop of water and a clean smell upon opening the bag.
The fish were all colorful and extremely lively. This
was a fantastic transaction from start to finish.

more. They're really healthy and actually breed for
me the first week. |
