This Albino Gold Bushy Nose Plecostomus, L-144 is busy doing what Plecos do best. Eating Algae! This hungry little Pleco belongs to PSWET and is affectionately known as Mr. Poopies. With so many varieties of Plecostomus around, don't limit yourself to just stocking a common Pleco in your tank.
An advantage to having a different type of Pleco, such as this beautiful Albino Bushy Nose, is that many won't grow as long as the common Plecostomus. They can grow a foot in length. A few characteristics of the Albino Gold Bushy Nose Pleco include:
- Fish Tank Conditions: 74-80 F, pH 6.5-7.4; KH 6-10
- Easy to care for
- Grows up to 4 1/2" long
- Bushy Nose Plecos eat algae, zucchini, and lettuce
- Originates in S. America
- Plecos are Bottom Dwellers
The Bushy Nose Pleco gets its name from the appendages that protrude around the mouth. They almost look like whiskers. I can tell you after having a Bushy Nose Pleco, that when you get to close to their face, they flare the whiskers out. I've seen them do it to other fish too. It makes them look scary, and is a good way to frighten another fish off that they don't want around.
The Albino Gold Bushy Nose is also known as the Yellow-Ancistrus. Plecos appreciate a well planted tank. Surrounded by Amazon plants, Hornwort, and Camboba, the Albino Bushy Nose will feel at home in the fish tank.
Your driftwood and aquarium walls will be clean after the Bushy Nose Pleco gets done with them. If you find an Albino Gold Bushy Nose as beautiful as Mr. Poopies, consider giving him a home.
