Blue Eye Lemon Bristlenose Plecos (L144) also known as Bushynose Plecos are awesome looking plecos are one of the few plecos that stay relatively small compared to their larger cousins. Their max size is up to 5 to 6 inches, which makes them great for most home aquariums. We sell them as Juveniles at around 1.5 to 2 inches in length.
They will grown bristles on their nose (hence, their name) as they get older, but the males will have more prominent bristles compared to the females. These fishes are great for algae control and will not bother most plants, they also should not bother freshwater dwarf shrimp.
