I purchased this bristle nose as an Albino. Lately I have been hearing a lot about Reds and Super Reds albino bristle nose. Would this guy be considered a red?

Looks like an albino BN to me.

Albino... however, since i put my adult male in hard water with some African cichlids, he is a vibrant orange and does an amazing job at cleaning the glass of the aquarium. Of course super red is very relative. They are just more orange than the reg. albino.

How do you ensure your pleco gets enough to eat? The feeding environment is very competitive in my aquarium.

Thanks in advance.

feed him zucchini they love it and not many others do , just weight it down with something
Also there should be some wood in the tank as they need to graze on it as well.

You can also feed right before you turn off the lights
