i got a bristle nose plec at the weekend and ant seen muth of him since then as hes been hiding in my 18g tank but i seen him today and hes got orange spots on his belly and head is this normal for this fish? are could he have some kind of white spot ??? my water is fine but i cant find out on orange spots please help me i dont wont to lose him i like him very much
there are alot of different plecos including the bristlenose orange spot pleco sometimes called catfish they do have orange spots.just like the gold nugget i had. oh and remember they are nocturnal i barely ever see mine i have 2 once in awhile ill see one during the day. are you feeding him algae discs its important you do feed it at night ihave a 55 gal tank and i drop 3 in at night because i also have a lace catfish, a black one, and a albino cory. you are turning off the lights at night i assume
**** thats good they look like little nuggets and he seams to be doing fine yes im feeding him alge flakes and peas without the shells i put them in and there gone in the morning so he must be eating and i turn my lights of at night because its in my bedroom thankyou for your reply
Glad I could help.
