L144 Lemon Blue Eye Bristlenose 2-3"

Description

The L144 Lemon Blue Eye Bristlenose, also known as the Lemon Blue Eye Pleco, is a specific variant of the Bristlenose Pleco (Ancistrus spp.), which is a type of catfish belonging to the Loricariidae family. Here is some information about this fish:

  1. Temperature: They thrive in water temperatures ranging from 72°F to 78°F (22°C to 26°C).

  2. Minimum Size Tank: A minimum tank size of 25 gallons is recommended to provide ample space for these fish, especially considering their need for hiding spots.

Feeding habits: L144 Lemon Blue Eye Bristlenose Plecos are primarily herbivorous and feed on algae in the wild. In an aquarium, they can be offered algae wafers, blanched vegetables, and occasional protein-rich foods such as bloodworms or brine shrimp.

Habitat preference: They prefer well-oxygenated tanks with ample hiding spots such as caves, driftwood, and plants. Providing hiding spots is essential to make them feel secure and reduce stress.

Water pH level: They prefer slightly acidic to neutral water conditions, with a pH ranging from 6.5 to 7.5.

Behavior: Bristlenose Plecos are generally peaceful, but males can be territorial, especially during the breeding season. They are known for their characteristic bristles on their heads, which are more prominent in males.

Solitary, nocturnal, or bottom dweller: These fish are primarily nocturnal and are known as bottom-dwellers, spending most of their time scavenging for food in the substrate.

Color and other details: The L144 Lemon Blue Eye Bristlenose Pleco has a distinct lemon yellow coloration with blue eyes, making it a sought-after variant among aquarium enthusiasts. They are known for their algae-eating abilities, making them valuable additions to freshwater aquariums, especially those with live plants.

To provide the best care for these fish, ensure that the aquarium is well-maintained with suitable water parameters, a balanced diet, and adequate hiding spots. Regular water changes and maintenance are crucial for their overall health and well-being.
