Super Red Bristlenose 5cm

The Super Red Bristlenose is part of the ANcistrus genus of nocturnal freshwater fish native to freshwater habitats in South America. The Bristlenose is a great tank cleaner. This is one of the main reasons this fish is so common in home aquariums. They are great algae eaters and will help keep algae levels to a minimum.

They are very peaceful and generally mind their own business and are therefore suitable to live with most kinds of fish but consideration should be taken into suitable water parameters of tank mates.

The Super Reds enjoy vegetable bases food like algae and it is recommended that their diet is supplemented with Algae wafers.
