i was thinking of getting a bristlenose. do you how much do they usually go for? and do you know where i could get one.They would be fine for planted tanks and they do look really cool.
I know that they are supposed to be algae eaters but mine don't seem to do a great job of it. In fact, they would rather hang out at the worm feeder eating the lbw that I give the discus.
Depending on the type of algae and assuming its not bba, I personally don't think that you can beat bristlenoses
