Juvenile Bristlenose Catfish - $1

Juvenile Bristlenose Catfish (aka, Bristlenose Plecos or Bushynose catfish), currently around 1.5 to 2 inches in size but grow to just 3 to 5 inches when full grown.

These are docile, peaceful fish that do well with other fish. They are great at keeping things tidy in the aquarium, gobbling up algae, and, because of their small size, do not require huge tanks like other pleco types. They are active and healthy. Born and tank-raised locally in Virginia.

Do well in growup tanke. Super cute and fun to watch!

1$ each. You cant beat that.

Pick up Reston VA. Can also bring to PVAS meeting this Saturday.
