Have you met the library’s newest resident? Meet our Albino Bushy Nose Plecostomus! Our new “pleco” joined the library staff a few weeks ago and is settling in to his new home. Our newbie is employed to keep our wonderful fish tank clean. You’ll find him hanging out on all the nooks and crannies vacuuming up debris.
Here are some fun facts about our new Albino Bushy Nose Plecostomuses:
- Origin: South America, Amazon River basin
- Size: Under 5 inches
- Favorite Food: Algae
- Females grow smaller and fewer bristles on their nose as the age, males grow more.
