Super Red Bristlenose Pleco Trio

Guaranteed 2 male and female! 18 to 20 month old fish. Big males at 3.5+" available

About My Fish

  • Parent fish are unrelated and a mature pair (Male is 6"+). I originally purchased them as my algae team for my planted aquariums.
  • Plecos are 18-20 months old and sexually mature. I have siblings from this group that are already breeding. Provided with the right conditions and they can start breeding 2 months or sooner
  • Fish breed true super reds. No albinos, blacks, calico bristlenose are produced from my line.
  • Guaranteed pair - I don't mix too many different ages of super reds in my grow-out tanks. This ensures that I can reliably determine the age of my fish. You won't get sleeper males from my pairs.
  • Males are 3" to 4"+ and females are 2" to 2.5" in size. My policy is to sell and ship the biggest fish first! Please also look at my photo on how I determine my females.


Bristlenose plecos are not very picky eaters but I provide them with quality food. The main foods listed are my go-to food for my plecos but other food can be introduced by gradually feeding it to them. Other listed foods are given as a snack or treat (twice or once a week). This ensures the fish have a varied diet.
  • Repashy Soilent Green (Main food)
  • Zucchini (Main food) - washed with hot water and peeled
  • Green Beans (Main food) - 2x feedings per week. Tried both salted(cheaper) and unsalted with my group with no issues
  • Hikari Algae Wafers (Snack)
  • Xtreme Monster Pellets (Snack) - this with a combined diet of feeding of high fiber foods. Don't feed your plecos this food unless you feed them a lot of veggies
  • Fluval Bug Bites - I give them this food just to make sure they know a common box store food. I would recommend the pleco bug bites version
  • Repashy Bottom Scratcher - Weekly

Water Parameters

  • Water Temp: 72-75 - I'm experimenting with colder water to cut down on my electricity bill during the winter
  • TDS: 160 to 240 TDS (My water source has switched for fall-winter)
  • PH: 6.2 to 6.6

Shipping Info, Terms and Conditions

  • I ship using USPS Priority Mail - No Live Arrival Guarantee. NO refunds provided for this shipping option. I have good experience shipping fish with this method as long as buyer is familiar how quickly priority mail gets to their location
  • I ship using USPS Express (preferred) - Live Arrival Guarantee - refunds are provided for this fish as long as the buyer sends a picture of the dead fish in the sealed bag within 2 hours of delivery. Shipping cost is non-refundable. Buyer can also get replacement fish if they are willing to pay for shipping. Shipping delays from this method are covered by USPS and I will replace dead fish from express shipping delays if I have the fish available. Buyer may file claim from USPS for the delayed shipment if the fish survive.
  • Fish are put on fasting 16-24 hours before being shipped. This reduces fish poop in the bag an ensures better survival during shipping.
  • I ship Mondays and Tuesdays only! Last orders are accepted at Saturday for Monday shipping and Sunday for Tuesday shipping. You can order a few days ahead.
  • Fish are individually double-bagged using 4 mil polybags (total 8 mil for 2 bags) and I use pure oxygen for each bag. I use an impulse sealer to seal my bag instead of rubber bands and all corners are sealed to prevent fish deaths from bag corners.
  • Fish are shipped in styrofoam insulated box. I use a hot wire cutter to make my styro liners to ensure better seal at the edges. All boxes has "live fish - handle with care stickers"
  • Heatpacks are available and will be provided at no extra cost. Please be mindful of your local weather.
  • Buyer must provide zip code to get shipping cost after auction closes.

Important info

  • Please be mindful if you experience shipping delays in your area. I can work with you on a specific Monday or Tuesday to ship if you have weather or pandemic related issues but be aware of how long USPS shipments get to your location
  • I have no intention of selling extra females since I have more males than females at this time. I can sell extra males for an additional $20 or extra pairs for $75.

About Payment

  • Payment by Paypal Only (Goods and services)

Please contact me if you have any question regarding my fish or if you want multiple trios Thanks for shopping!
