Default Bushynose Pleco in 75g with Angels ?

Would a Bushynose Pleco be okay in a 75g with Angels / Tetras / Rams ?

I think I'd need to get some extra driftwood, right ?

But they do eat algae ?

I've kept BN pleco with some of my african cichlids including a frontosa tank with moderate success. They've been doing fine except this one BN pleco that was a bit smaller and fit right into my front's mouth...

That said, a BN pleco with the tank mates you mentioned above should be fine especially the angels and tetras. Rams are probably a bit more aggressive but should be fine too since they are much smaller and especially if it's not a bare tank.

PS - I think this is the wrong section..

I have adult bristlenose plecos with tetras, angels and ram cichlids. No concerns or worries with that stocking ideas, just make sure the pleco has food.

In theory, BNPs eat algae. In practice, mine is a lazy good-for-nothing that only eats wafers and vegetables. My expired credit card gets a workout on the glass when the algae builds up.

He is fun to look at, though!

Once upon a time I had a common pleco that I absolutely adored - but he well outgrew his tank and for his own sake I had to take him in the LFS

SAD day, even though I new it was the best for him.

Let me see if I can find a photo of him to share
