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.

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.

Came fast, healthy and spawned three days after they arrived. Highly satisfied.

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.

Not enough good things to say about the lovely pair of super reds I received. Very healthy, happy, active and unbelievably beautiful! I've had many fish shipped from all over the world, and no one has done a better job. Very caring, and responsible! Customer forever!

Ordered Super Reds as well as some Blue Eyed Plecos. The fish came in looking amazing and the packaging/shipping was outstanding. These guys really care for their customers.

These are the nicest plecos I've ever received. Healthy, colorful and eating like little pigs. Super transaction.

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. Thanks Steve!

I bought these fish a month ago, and now i am buying more. They're really healthy and actually breed for me the first week.
