OK so here is my 3rd and final thread on this subject.
Questions about PITBULL/BRISTLENOSE pleco
1) can they live in a high ph (7.8-8.0)
2) can they live in hard to very hard water
3)can i put ONE pleco and leave it in there (long term)
NOTE: i have alage wafers, alage, and fresh veggies i can give to them for food
NOTE: i clean my tank every week and it has hard water and a high ph
NOTE: My betta would be the only other living thing in the tank, and he is not really aggressive, although he has been in the tank for almost 1 year and a half
I would not mind giving the whole tank to just the pleco, as i love them just as much as bettas, but unlike bettas, have never had them, obviously because of my tank size. This is until i spotted the BN and Pitbull pleco.
Would i need a better filter? What filter out of the following do you recommend?
1)MARINA SLIM (10 or 20 gal. one)
2)AQUACLEAR (10 or 20 gal. one)
I just want some happy and healthy fishes, but, if there is no chance a pleco would survive in my tank long-term, i am not going to risk its life.
ALL about my tank:
Might consider converting 10 gal. betta tank into community?
Thanks again! (note- i am still somewhat a beginner-
