Got a few albino bristlenose

Post by Aura on Fri Jan 21, 2011 4:18 pm

Even though I'm up to my neck in regular bristlenose, I wanted some albinos as well. The adult albino bristlenose I do have are male, so I picked up a few more little ones from a local breeder near me. I hope there's a female in the group.

Not the albinos, but they're so cute eating their pellets.

I'm up to my ears in BN's, too, Betty!
The albinos I have were spawned from my dark adults, although I haven't had any more albinos spawned since!
I bought one albino from outside source to add to them, and it wound up sucked up the filter intake!

I've given away tons and tons of the regular colored plecos, J, but I actually bought these albinos to go with my lone adult male. Rolling Eyes I really wanted some albinos! I hope there is a female in those little ones that he will take a liking to (if they grow up before he's too old)!

He's had the chance to spawn with the normal female, but hasn't shown any interest.

I'm going to take some of the dark ones to the HCCC auction, and keep the albinos.
Maybe I can pick up some more unrelated albinos at the auction to go with them.
I should probably keep some of the dark ones from that group, though, as they are
probably carrying the albino genes. I wish I know which parents produced them.

I finally got a spawn about a month ago.

They are slow growing with all of the competition for food. I'm overrun with shrimp. They seem to thrive on the same foods and lots of water changes.







This morning I found some stray eggs on the tank floor and one of the males is in his log so it looks like more babies are on the way.
