1.5” Longfin Bushynose Calico Plecos

Bushynose Calico Pleco

Ancistrus sp.


These plecos have a beautiful pattern and great color!

1.5" to 2"

A generally peaceful and hardy species, the Longfin Bushynose Calico Plecos is an excellent, undemanding candidate for most aquariums. Unlike the widely-seen Common Pleco (Hypostomus plecostomus) and Trinidad Pleco (Hypostomus punctatus), which easily reach a monstrous size of 18 to 20+ inches (45 to 51+ cm), theLongfin Bushynose Calico Pleco grows to a size of only 4 to 5.9 inches (10 to 15 cm). This smaller size makes for a much more manageable (and less messy) pleco that can thrive permanently in a well-maintained aquarium as small as 20 to 40 gallons. Male plecos may be somewhat territorial with other males of their species, but disputes can usually be diffused by providing ample territory and hiding places for each fish. All other tankmates will be generally ignored, although it is possible that small shrimp fry might fall prey to the Longfin Bushynose Calico Plecos. Some large-scale shrimp suppliers breed Longfin Bushynose Calico Plecos in the same pools they use for shrimp breeding.
