What food do Bristlenose Plecos eat?

Bristlenose Plecos are herbivores, eating mainly algae, so feeding algae or spirulina wafers are best foods for feeding once or twice daily. Granules, flakes, or bloodworms are also good, while the occasional zucchini slices and blanched romaine lettuce or spinach are good treats. Just make sure to never overfeed. Having driftwood in your aquarium with Bristlenose is also a good idea.
