 After  my  query  on  food  ...  i  did  some  googling  and  found  that  they  love  blanched  veg  sp.  cucumber.
 
 I  tried  it  out  an  truly  amazed  at  how  the  sucker  was  enjoying  the  food!!  Overnight  it  ate  the  inner  soft  portion  of  it  and  I  removed  what  was  left  in  the  morning.
 
 Not  just  sucker,  the  other  fishes  also  nipped  at  it.

the  only  problem  with  cucumber  is,  the  water  gets  spoilt  very  fast

 when  i  kept  my  L's  i  would  only  use  courgettes,  spinach  and  lettuce  to  feed  them  plus  the  usual  algae  wafers  and  pellet  foods.
 but  for  these  types  of  fish  a  good  book  is  a  must,  i  have  Back  to  Nature  by  Ingo  Seidel.
 because  they're  suckermouths  people  think  they  are  veggie  eater  nothing  can  be  further  than  the  truth,  alot  of  them  are  meat  eaters  .
 i  only  have  three  species  now  L72,  mega  clown  and  the  normal  clown  i  also  had  a  L114  until  i  sold  it  to  a  friend  as  he  needed  a  female  for  breeding,  but  these  4  species  need  different  feedings.

 they  don't  get  any  thing  other  than  hikari  algae  wafers,  and  once  in  a  while  hikari  cichlid  gold  sinking,  i  don't  have  to  worry  about  them  not  getting  food  as  they  have  their  own  tank  to  themselves,  so  they  will  get  enough  food.  Smile

 yeah  the  light  color  substrate  would,  but  the  joselimaianus  isn't  in  a  tank  for  itself,  they  are  the  ones  i  use  for  algae  cleaning  purpose  in  my  big  tanks,  so  the  tank  is  kinda  setup  for  some  other  fish  and  not  for  the  plecos.
 
 as  for  the  Bristlenose,  they  need  driftwood,  just  like  royals  and  many  other  pekoltia,  for  their  dietary  requirements,  and  this  one  was  sitting  right  on  the  driftwood  close  to  the  front  glass,  so  this  is  a  pic  Very Happy

 the  pekoltia  are  in  a  30g  and  so  are  the  bristlenose  plecos,  with  an  amazon  plant,  with  a  filtration  of  700ltr/h.
 
 the  joselimaianus  are  in  the  220  and  the  180,  they  are  their  for  glass  cleaning,  but  they  still  get  goodies,  just  for  them  Wink

 headbangerjib,  
 
 i  enjoyed  everyone  of  your  delightful  photos.  thanks  for  putting  them  up.  
 
 i  have  a  joselimaianus.  due  to  inexperience,   i  lost  my  gibbiceps   Sad  
 
 but  the  joseimaianus  is  doing  well  and  is  my  joy.  
 
 i  wish  to  buy  an  ancistrus/bushnose/bristlnose.  your  starlight  ancistrus  female  is  marvellous.  
 
 may  i  know  how  much  u  paid  for  them?
 
 many  thanks,
 Romi

 oops,  in  case  prices  are  a  violation  of  IAH  policy,  could  u  be  so  kind  as  to  pm?  
 
 in  delhi,  my  dealer  in  anand  parbat  gets  some  good  prices  from  dealers  based  in  Mumbai.  lemme  know  if  u  would  be  interested  in  a  PM   Very Happy  
 
 ancistrus  are  easy  to  breed.  some  sailfins/veiltails  look  ethereal.  i  understand  most  of  them  are  hybrids.
