Super Red Bristlenose Pleco (Ancistrus sp.)

$24.99$69.99

Of all the selectively bred morphs of the Common Bristlenose or Bushynose Pleco (Ancistrus sp.) available in the hobby, the “super red” form is probably the most colorful and sought after. Developed over time from naturally occurring color variants, this fish sports a uniform, vibrant red-orange coloration. As with all Common Bristlenose Plecos, these fish are ideal aquarium inhabitants, grazing on diatom algae while still being safe with live plants and peaceful towards all tankmates.
