View Full Version : 3 bristle noses in a 40 breeder?
12-18-2004, 07:52 PM
Ok, I added a pair (hopefully m/f) of Ancistrus sp. "plecos" to my 40 breeder (the one with the white calvus) to make for a total of 3 bristle noses.......
Since the calvus and plecos both use the same general type of shape to breed, and I have lots of large shells/caves that are properly shaped, I'm hoping to spawn both in the same tank....I plan on removing the structure that the fish breed in before the fry get too large so one species dosn't eat the fry of the other (both calvus and plecos are known to be fry eaters....)
Also residing in the tank is a medium large (7-8 inch) Synodontis decorus....
Any feedback/thoughts on this set up?

Here's some shots of the aquascaping...
From the side...
Get the African cichlids out.
Sorry Colby you had to know it was coming.
Seriously though. Cool looking tank.
Get some pics of the decorus. I love those cats.

Ha ha Rudy :D
I'll try to get some more pics of the big decorus (I have 2 slighty smaller ones with my peacocks also)...I haven't got any of him since he had that case of ich......Here is one of his tail (all ich'y) with the female calvus for size comparision....

Snapped a few pics on my lunch hour....
It's the best I could do on the moment Rudy....But you should see him flutter around the tank when he does come out...really near catfish...
you can really see how long his dorsal filament is in these...
