I'm just plotting how many tanks and what kinds of setups they'd be for our new, big apartment Smiley (we MIGHT move next year if lucky! Cheesy)

Ok, I'm in! Cheesy

I suffer from being an aquaticholic. 
I have MTS .
When I see a new beautiful fish I actually find myself salivating. Roll Eyes
Will this club enable me or help my addiction? Grin

YES Andrea, sure you qualify, lol.

Afer you moved Clememtine into Sunshines tank you should be able to keep 3 BN in that empty one and maybe 6 Rasboras.
Bristlenoses like to be in a shoal of min 3 and if you get them a log where they can hide and eventually breed they will be very happy. And the Rasboras are very tiny but very nice fishies with their clear, black and orange colours.

I don't think I could fit even one bristlenose in that tank, they grow big!!! Just going to get a betta, I honestly don't think it could or should hold anymore especially due to it's shape.

Bristlenoses grow to be at most 8cm long c: So really, that won't be a problem Smiley Plecos on the other hand... xD
They are pretty similar fish, but you can see a slight difference in their patterns and body shapes c:

The common ancistrus is usually referred to as bristlenose since males have some funny mustache! Cheesy But Plecos generally don't... and their dorsal fin goes much farther down their back than on ancistrus.

Well I know I only have my 1 pudgy fishtailer but I do have 2 tanks now so does that count as being afflicted with MTS? hahahahahah I saw a Pleco close to 2 feet long last week! He wasn't for sale...I wonder why  Shocked at that size they probably have to feed him full sized steaks!

Sure April, I just can see you getting some other fish for the empty tank, as it will look empty and sad... maybe some small tropicals? Ask Santa  Grin

I have to say that one thing I really like about my pleco is that he does keep the aquarium and plants spotless! Cheesy

April: Minde keeps her pleco separate with tropical fish and the goldfish in other tanks! Cheesy
Which is the best way to go since both plecos and goldies grow pretty big. Both my mom and my cousin are keeping bristlenoses with their goldfish for a long time now and they're all thriving and growing! Smiley
