Just wondering if it will be safe for the yellow lab fries if I put one albino bristlenose pleco in the tank just to clean the limestone rocks?

Has anyone tried putting a pleco with baby fries?

Thanks in advance,
Clint.

i had 3 baby BN plecos maybe 1.5-2 inches long in with my demasoni/yellow labs for about a week, was fine. they clean up all the flakes that the fry miss.

I have a albino BN pleco around 2-2.5" male and female. Would that size of a pleco harm the babies?

The fry tank is 10 gallons btw. With limestone rocks.

BN plecos are typically more into a veggie type of diet.
I highly doubt that they would even attempt to or could catch & eat any of your fry.
As long as you have hiding places such as your rock I think you'd be just fine. I'm sure they wouldn't pay the fry any mind at all. I'd be very surprised if they did. I have Endlers in my BN tank & no problems with the fish or fry at all. Lots of adult BN, semi-adult BN & BN babies in the same said tank.
Just my HO.
Cheers!!!
