Is It Bristlenose Pleco or Bristlenose Catfish???
Have Your Ever Wondered What the Difference Actually is Between a Bristlenose Pleco and a Bristlenose Catfish?
Well it’s simple really, Bristlenose Pleco is simply just another name for Bristlenose Catfish. Therefore if you’re familiar with searching for information on the internet (as I’m sure you are) you’ve probably already noticed how many things are given different “common names” in different parts of the world.
So if you live in Australia you are more likely to attach the word “Catfish” to Bristlenose whilst if you’re from the USA, Canada or the UK you’ll probably use the common name Bristlenose Pleco instead.
Therefore if you’ve come here looking for information about Bristlenose Plecos then you have indeed come to the right place.
The Bristlenose Pleco is an extremely useful fish due to it’s efficiency as a very effective algae eater. They are also one of the few algae eaters that won’t slacken off over time and show a preference for other foods.
Bristlenose Plecos are also reasonably easy to breed as well. It’s because of this, plus the demand for them within the aquarium industry (due to the popularity of the Bristlenose Pleco) there is an opportunity for fish keepers to take up the hobby of breeding Bristlenose Plecos and actually turn their hobby into a profit making venture.
Having said that though, how successful you may actually become will definitely depend on how knowledgeable you become and how well you do your research. Quality information is the obvious answer, as things will go wrong when you leave your outcome to chance.
When I first went in search of information about the Bristlenose Pleco and in particular breeding them, I came across an eBook called Keeping and Breeding Bristlenose by Douglas Green.
Douglas is a long time Bristlenose breeder and a moderator on BristlenoseWorld.com. Therefore I thought it was quite rare to find someone who was so well qualified in a topic to actually go ahead and write an eBook about it. Normally some of these eBooks are just thrown together by someone just trying to make a fast buck, but not in this instance.
After I purchased it and read it I could tell Douglas was the real deal as the Bristlenose Pleco information was just first class. Therefore if you just want to keep Bristlenose Plecos I’d recommend it and if you want to Breed Bristlenose Plecos then I’d definitely suggest you get you hands on it.
It is very well written and the information is first class.
So go ahead and check out Douglas Green’s eBook on the Bristlenose Pleco, it’s guaranteed and I’m certain you’ll be more than pleased.
